I’m pleased to announce that I’m scheduled to speak this morning at a conference in Washington, D.C. on the increasingly weird relationship between American trade policy and American antitrust policy.
The overall event focuses on the troubling rise of monopolies and oligopolies in general in the U.S. economy in recent decades, and is co-sponsored by The American Conservative and The American Prospect – two magazines pretty far apart on the political spectrum. My own presentation will draw on my article earlier this year on the subject in the summer issue of American Affairs. (Yes, yet another political publication!).
If you live in the D.C. area, the event will be taking place at the National Press Club downtown starting at 11 AM. If not, I haven’t yet found anywhere where the conference can be seen live on-line. But if I do before I actually mount the rostrum, I’ll try to send it out. And of course, once a link to any video is posted, I’ll let you know ASAP.
In the meantime, wish me luck, and keep checking in with RealityChek for news of upcoming media appearances and other developments.
