I will be doing a Conversation with Doug in early October, although with no associated public event, just a later podcast and transcript. Here is Wikipedia on Doug:
Douglas Irwin is the John Sloan Dickey Third Century Professor in the Social Sciences in the Economics Department at Dartmouth College and the author of seven books. He is an expert in both past and present U.S. trade policy, especially policy during the Great Depression. He is frequently sought by media outlets such as The Economist and Wall Street Journal to provide comment and his opinion on current events.
Prior to Dartmouth, Irwin was an Associate Professor of Business Economics at the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business, an economist for the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, and an economist for the Council of Economic Advisers Executive Office of the President.
Doug has a very exciting new book on the history of trade coming out, which I covered here. Here is Doug on Twitter. Here is Doug’s recent WSJ Op-Ed on Steve Bannon, trade, and the history of America’s greatness.
So what should I ask Doug? Your grace and wisdom are always appreciated and never in short supply.
