What is the national interest in trade? Is it economic growth? National and international stability? Upward mobility for workers (and which workers)? And what are the terms of trade to benefit producers, consumers, and shareholders?
On April 8, 2021, WITA hosted a compelling conversation of what trade means for the United States, and how that can be manifest in a worker-centric and inclusive trade policy.
