  1. Speaker:
    Santos will be presenting his latest work, “Lessons from the TPP and the Future of Labor Chapters in Trade Agreements.” His piece uses the failure of the Trans-Pacific Partnership to think through the merits of traditional “trade-labor” linkages, and explores various ways to “retool” the global economic regime to address broader distributive concerns and ameliorate the ill-effects of trade liberalization on labor, such as job losses and wage declines.
