From my Mercatus Center colleague Dan Griswold:

With trade policy a major topic in the presidential campaign, the Mercatus Center will be hosting a high-level discussion at a Capitol Hill event next Thursday titled, “Free Trade: Principles, Myths, Prospects.”

Delivering the keynote address will be Douglas Irwin of Dartmouth University, author of the book Free Trade under Fire and the recent seminal article in Foreign Affairs, “The Truth about Trade.”

Irwin’s presentation will be followed by a discussion on trade policy and the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership. The expert panel will include Edward Gresser, Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for Trade Policy and Economics, Office of the U.S. Trade Representative; Linda Dempsey, Vice President of International Economic Affairs, National Association of Manufacturers; and Ed Gerwin, Senior Fellow, Trade and Global Opportunity, Progressive Policy Institute.
