Episode Info:

During the recent U.S. presidential campaign, railing against trade became a popular pastime. But it is nothing new. Today on the podcast, we’re looking at how efforts to weaken trade have played out in the past, and whether Trump’s proposed trade policies will do what he promises.

Featuring interviews with Eduardo Campanella, a Eurozone economist, discussing mercantilism in the past and Marc Levinson, author of An Extraordinary Time: The End of the Postwar Boom and the Return of the Ordinary Economy, on the outlook for Trump’s trade restrictionism.
