Trans-Pacific Partnership: Pros & Cons
Trans-Pacific Partnership Series
Thursday, May 17, 2012 — 8 PM
The U.S. initiative for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) reflects political and strategic considerations rather than purely economic motivation. As a result, it is likely to carry substantial downsides, raising the question whether the initiative is desirable. Jagdish Bhagwati, University Professor, Columbia University, will discuss both the pros and the cons of the TPP initiative.
Jagdish Bhagwati, Senior Fellow for International Economics, the Council on Foreign Relations; University Professor, Columbia University
Motoatsu Sakurai, President, Japan Society
