May 11, 2010 // 7:30am9:30am

Drawing on expertise from both sides of the Canada-U.S. border, the One Issue, Two Voices series is designed to stimulate dialogue on policy issues that have a significant impact on the bilateral relationship. This publication examines Buy America from political, economic, and legal points of view, focusing on the implications of protectionism for the future prosperity of both countries.

Panelists Robert Baugh and William Robson discussed the charges of protectionism triggered by Buy America and debated their contrasting approaches to promoting economic growth and job creation during hard times. Glen Hodgson, chief economist at the Conference Board of Canada, served as moderator.

This event took place in Ottawa.
