Rodney North, communications consultant/former Board Chair of Equal Exchange and co-owner of the largest fair trade enterprise in North America, and Donald Boudreaux, Ph.D., Professor of Economics at George Mason University and former President of libertarian think tank Foundation for Economic Education, will discuss with Ford Hall Forum board member and Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby whether free trade can be fair and vice versa. From subsidies to tariffs to quotas, a variety of standards affect trade but are they effective or even sensible? What are the effects of a chosen trade method on international borders, environmental and labor regulations, and bureaucracy? Is there a compromise that combines partnership and transparency with unfettered commerce?
