The Trump administration has announced a number of trade initiatives that threaten to upend the world trading system that has governed the global economy since World War II. Dr. Bombardini will explore the motivations behind Trump’s campaign promises, the tools at his disposal to modify the US stance on international trade and how other countries, including Canada, will be affected.
