Time: 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM EDT
Event Description:
FREE MARKETS VS. PROTECTIONISM  
The course will present the claimed advantages and disadvantages of each.  It will test those claims using a model with input from the students.   (I will create the model in Excel.  The model will illustrate a simple trading system with two countries and two products.  The students will be able to decide what sort of tariff barriers or quotas we should test.)
