DESCRIPTION
Coming to Terms with a Polarized Society: "Importing Political Polarization? The Electoral Consequences of Rising Trade Exposure"

David Autor (MIT) will use evidence from the worlds of economics and political science to examine the impact of economic change – and in particular the rising competition of foreign imports into the American market – on political polarization. Counties that were particularly exposed to foreign trade have become more likely to vote for the Republican candidate for president. The panel will address the question of economic and political responses to these trends that may have the potential to ameliorate political polarization.

Panelists:
Thomas Edsall, Joseph Pulitzer II and Edith Pulitzer Moore Professor, Columbia University; Op-Ed Writer, New York Times

Alan Krueger, Bendheim Professor of Economics and Public Affairs, Princeton University; Former Chairman of President Barack Obama's Council of Economic Advisers

Moderated by Thomas DiPrete, Giddings Professor of Sociology.
Free and open to the public. RVSP encouraged but not required.
