Global Trade Expert Jeremy Haft To Speak on Protectionism
At the G-7 Summit in Italy, President Trump pledged to join the allied fight against protectionism, contradicting the protectionist position he has taken against Germany, China, and Canada in recent months. Trade and economics are of significant concern to the organization, as a nation’s financial position is a key factor in its security. Indeed, strong trade relations between countries ensure stronger alliances and greater international security overall. Protectionism isolates nations and weakens their economies, leaving domestic security on uneven terrain. This Tuesday, The WACA will host a discussion by expert on global trade, Jeremy Haft, on the issues brought on by isolationist policies, and alternatives.
