The perennially popular noontime conversation series Great Decisions returns to Portland State University January 18 - with another round of riveting discussions on the ideas, people, and issues changing the face of the globe. Can't make any of the 8-week series, not a problem - we'll be streaming it live

Decoding U.S.-China Trade
Though arguably the most advanced economy in the world, the United States still uses centuries-old numbers to measure trade. These antique numbers mangle understanding of the U.S.-China trade relationship, shrinking America’s true economic size and competitiveness, while swelling China’s. Bad numbers give rise to bad policies that ultimately kill U.S. jobs and cede market share to China. What other tools can the United States employ to counter China’s unfair trade practices? There are several available, yet they remain mostly unused.

Speaker: Scott Goddin, Director, U.S. Commercial Service-Oregon/Export Council of Oregon
