Trade—the exchange that powers the world—allows us to sell what we produce at home and purchase what we don’t. In the age of globalization, trade has joined together more people than ever before, providing access to major new markets and countless new products that have revolutionized our lives.
However, for millions of people, global trade has become a popular target for blame and the frustrations of modern life. Much of the public only connects trade with unfathomable, high-level deals causing the fundamental principles to often seem inaccessible and confusing.
Join us for a lively discussion with former Chairman and President of the Export-Import Bank of the United States Fred P. Hochberg as he uses everyday products – from the banana to Game of Thrones – to understand the essentials of trade that everyone should know.
