International trade policy has becomepart of the election year campaign discussion.
MITA's September program focuses on US trade policy in an election year:
  • does trade cost jobs?
  • should the U.S. impose a 45% tariff  on Chinese imports?
  • should the U.S. leave NAFTA?
  • should the U.S. ratify new trade  agreements with 11 Pacific Rim  countries, and another with the EU?

Two expert speakers separate rhetoric from reality, and discuss the possible consequences for US exporters. 

Our first speaker, Andy Schutz, an attorney at Grunfeld Desiderio Lebowitz Silverman & Klestadt LLP in Washington, D.C. (Mlwaukee office).  He practices in the antidumping and countervailing areas particularly, but follows the general  international trade discussion closely.

Our second speaker is Kurt Bauer, President of Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce. He will focus on the meaning of to US economy as a whole and to Wisconsin in particular.
