Economic Consequences of Trade

Grant Year: 2018

Stephen Redding will lead an effort to examine the economic consequences of international trade. He will commission research to investigate how the costs and benefits of trade are apportioned among workers in different industries as well as among consumers, explore how countries negotiate trade deals, assess under what circumstances industrial policies can promote economic growth, and consider how the development of global supply chains has altered the distribution of trade-related costs and benefits. The project’s findings will appear in a series of papers and be presented at a conference in Washington.
