The Impact of Trade Liberalization on Poverty

April 15, 2005 // 8:30am6:00pm
Program on America and the Global Economy
Most economists argue that increasing international trade contributes to economic growth and therefore to the alleviation of poverty. Beyond basic questions and theoretical costs and benefits, however, the relationship between trade and poverty becomes considerably more complicated. Even in the most successful cases, the impact of increased trade depends heavily on the condition of existing institutions, public investments in education and infrastructure, the presence of safety nets, and the impact of the world economy. The video and report for this event is now available online.
