Is multilateralism dead?: Trade in the era of Trump

Individuals are the ultimate drivers of globalization, but governments set the rules of the game and the rules can be very important to the outcome. Sometimes the rules may need updating, but how do we know if that time has arrived, and how can we decide which rules to discard and which to keep?

In this lecture, Professor Robert Staiger addresses these questions through the lens of economic research on the purpose and design of trade agreements, and asks: “Is multilateralism as embodied in the World Trade Organization — dead?"
