Free Trade and Wisconsin Jobs

Speaker: Edward Alden, senior fellow, Council on Foreign Relations, and former Washington bureau chief, Financial Times
Respondent: Phil Neuenfeldt, president, Wisconsin State AFL-CIO

As the U.S. pursues free trade agreements around the globe, supporters point to increased opportunities for American businesses while opponents characterize the deals as "job killers." Which trade policies provide the most benefit to people in Wisconsin and across the nation?

The University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee Institute of World Affairs (IWA) and Milwaukee Journal Sentinel present the Fireside Forum on Foreign Policy on Tuesday evenings, Feb. 7-March 6, from 7-8:30 p.m. in the UWM Union Alumni Fireside Lounge. The presentations are free and open to the public.
