Trade Wars and Trade Talks

ARPICO and DR. MATILDE BOMBARDINI present...

TRADE WARS AND TRADE TALKS

Whether we pick up an old-fashioned newspaper, listen to the news on the radio, or get our local or international affairs update through social media, we realize that the state of the economy at pretty much all scales is lurking behind many aspects of our lives and may be responsible for their ups and downs. The intricacies linking trade and economics with politics especially at the international level can be tricky to unravel. We are therefore fortunate to have professor Matilde Bombardini from UBC come and enlighten us on these very timely topics.

After going through an unprecedented period of liberalization after the post-war period, international trade is again front and center in the political and economic debate in virtually all countries in the world. Professor Matilde Bombardini will offer a perspective on the tools of trade policy and discuss the origins and current developments around Brexit, the US-China Trade War, CETA and USMCA.

Dr. Matilde Bombardini is an Associate Professor in the Vancouver School of Economics at the University of British Columbia, a fellow of the National Bureau for Economic Research, a fellow of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research and co-editor of the Journal of International Economics. Her research focuses on political economy and international trade. Dr. Bombardini has studied the organization of interest groups and the behaviour of lobbyists in the US, and has linked the pattern of international trade to the inequality of education outcomes within countries. She is currently investigating the effect of international trade on pollution and infant mortality in China and the use of corporate philanthropy as a political tool. Bombardini is a native of Italy where she obtained her undergraduate degree at the University of Bologna. She obtained her PhD in Economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2005. She is the recipient of the 2015 Bank of Canada Governor’s Award, the 2017 Killam Research Prize, the 2012 Young Researcher Prize from the Canadian Women Economists Network/Réseau de Femmes Économistes (CWEN/RFÉ) and the 2012 Harry Johnson Prize for best paper in the Canadian Journal of Economics.

Tickets are Needed

  • Tickets are FREE, but all individuals are requested to obtain "free-admission" tickets on Event Brite site due to limited seating at the venue. Organizers need accurate registration numbers to manage wait lists and prepare name tags.
  • All ARPICO events are 100% staffed by volunteer organizers and helpers, however, room rental, stationery, and guest refreshments are costs incurred and underwritten by members of ARPICO. Therefore to be fair, all audience participants are asked to donate to the best of their ability at the door to "help" defray costs of the event.

Everyone is welcome. See you there!
