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 [3] and the recent seminal article in Foreign Affairs, “The Truth about Trade.” [4]

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.
