Dr. Russell Roberts, Professor of Economics, George Mason University

For years, Russ Roberts has led a seminar on the fundamentals of trade, taking the lessons from basic economics and applying them to our economic situation. In this revised seminar, Roberts adds new insights that will help participants understand just what’s at stake with trade policy and how traditional models of trade can mislead.

Join us we address such questions as:
How does trade create prosperity?
What is at stake when we alter our trade policy? Why is trade policy more volatile during a recession?
What’s wrong with Buy American or Buy Local? Who wins and loses when trade is restricted?
