 Has Globalization Gone Too Far? Economists and Business Leaders Discuss on April 21 in Philadelphia


What: The 35th Annual Monetary and Trade Conference: “De-Globalization: Is it real?”

In response to recent political developments, some have proposed that the fast pace of interdependence should be reversed to preserve employment, improve national prosperity, and stimulate demand through investing in local, not global, business opportunities. This conference, hosted by the Global Interdependence Center and Drexel’s LeBow College of Business, will focus on three aspects of the debate of de-globalization: (a) free trade, (b) investment flows, and (c) global financial system vulnerabilities.
