Great Decisions Topic: Industrial Policy with Mark Wilson, Ph. D, Associate Professor of History at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte

February 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EST

FOREIGN POLICY ASSOCIATION SYNOPSIS OF Industrial Policy

There is no single accepted definition for the term “industrial policy.” The current discussion of industrial policy in the United States is not simply about whether or not to support specific companies or industries, but about trust or mistrust of the government and its ability to manage the economy and deal with a rising China. The upheaval in supply chain during the pandemic exposed weaknesses in the international economy. What policies can the United States implement to deal with trade and the economy? Dr. Mark Wilson will give us insight into our policy options.
