  1. Friday, February 8, 2019 - 8:30am to 3:00pm

    Trade is not a zero-sum game, in fact, many would say that trade is a positive sum game (why would a country sign an agreement they don’t see as beneficial to their interests?). But yet, economic nationalism is on the rise, as evidenced by the current trade policies of the United States. Join us on February 8, 2019, as The Risk Institute, Moritz College of Law, Fisher College of Business and the College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences examine the legal, business and economic consequences of U.S. trade policy through an interdisciplinary lens.
