Forum Breakfast: Making the Case for Free Trade

Wednesday, December 18, 2019 (7:30 AM - 8:45 AM) (PST)


This month, we are focused on free trade, featuring local economist Kimberly Clausing. Her book, Open: The Progressive Case for Free Trade, Immigration, and Global Capital, has been featured by Bloomberg News, the Brookings Institution, and the Harvard Business Review. Join us to hear her insights on how trade, immigration, and globalization support a healthy and thriving economy here at home. We will deconstruct critiques and discuss how Oregon can leverage free trade that benefits our state.
