Global Conversations DIGITAL: Trade is Not a Four-Letter Word

April 14, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Trade allows us to sell what we produce at home and purchase what we don’t. It lowers prices and gives us greater variety and innovation. Understanding our place in the global trade network is rarely simple: Trade has become a question mark for struggling economies, sometimes a scapegoat for failing businesses, and for many who struggle to understand it, nothing short of a four-letter word.

As former Chairman of the Export-Import Bank of the United States, Fred Hochberg maintains trade is easier to understand than we commonly think. Drawing from experience and his book Trade is Not a Four-Letter Word, Hochberg is primed to discuss trade in the particular context of bipartisan trade agreements, such as the 2020 U.S. Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). Negotiated by the Trump Administration and passed with bipartisan support in Congress, the success and value of the agreement for American workers has been touted publicly on both sides of the legislative aisle.

This event will be livestreamed, with links provided to registrants.
