Prof WuThe U.S.-China Trade War

Wednesday, October 31
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. ET

When China joined the World Trade Organization in 2001, supporters believed that law could be used as an instrument to cajole China toward greater economic liberalization, while also serving to mediate future conflicts between China and its trading partners. In the intervening years, trade between the U.S. and China has ballooned to over $700 billion in 2017. How is it that the two economies came to be locked in a trade war?

Professor Mark Wu explains how the growth of “China, Inc.” gave rise to challenges to the global trade regime and why the Trump Administration has shifted toward a more confrontational strategy to deal with these challenges.
