Kyle Bagwell, the Donald L.

The talk will take place on Tuesday, March 24 in the Central Library Community room from 4-5:30pm. A reception will follow the talk.
Bagwell has written on a variety of trade-related issues, including the theory of trade agreements, the most-favored nation principle, enforcement of trade agreements, labor and environmental standards, and preferential trade agreements. His 2002 book with Bob Staiger, The Economics of the World Trading System, developed the "terms of trade" theory of trade agreements and is a major contribution to the literature on trade policy.
