Money, Trade, and Power - What Makes the World Go ‘Round (series)
Among the many issues testing relations between countries around the globe, perhaps none has strained relations more than trade in recent years. Countries strive to grow and protect their domestic industries, employment, and overall economy by preserving world markets for their most sensitive products. This lecture series will examine relations between major trading countries and regions - the U.S., the E.U, China, and Africa, among others. Each lecture will start with an overview of the area to be discussed that day. The series will explain how tariffs in world trade went from being high to where they were nearly eliminated before the recent revival of world trade tensions. The series will also address complex trade issues such as comparative advantage, supply chains, and value added. Finally, the series will review the special trade challenges facing the developing world and 2 key industries with a global and Michigan trade impact - agriculture and automotive.
