I’m pleased to announce that I will be speaking next week in Washington, D.C. at a briefing on President Obama’s proposed new trade deals being sponsored by U.S. Representatives Marcy Kaptur of Ohio and John Conyers, Jr. of Michigan.  The briefing will be held Tues., March 3 between noon and 1 in Rm. 2456 of the Rayburn House Office Building.  And it’s open to all media and the general public, as well as Members of Congress and their staffs.  Appearing with me will be economist Robert Scott of the Economic Policy Institute.

Accredited journalists seeking more information can contact Jenny Perrino of Rep. Kaptur’s staff at 202-225-4146 or at jenny.perrino@mail.house.gov.

In addition, it’s an honor to have just been elected to the Board of Trustees of the Henry George School of Social Science in New York City.  The School is planning to expand greatly its educational and research programs on domestic and international economics, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to help out. Keep visiting RealityChek for more details on the School’s activities they develop.

Finally, it was great to see my research on America’s dangerously high trade deficits cited on the popular investing website Seeking Alpha.
