Global Conversations in St. Paul: Trade and Politics
Courtroom 326; 12 pm; Free

But do the numbers support that conclusion? The metrics used to gauge economic strength—Gross Domestic Product and balance of trade—have not kept up with the realities of modern manufacturing. This discussion focuses on Minnesota in the International Trade Arena and is jointly sponsored by Landmark Center and Global Minnesota.
