Coming up tonight, at 5:30pm in Titsworth Lecture Hall, Jagdish Bhagwati, a Columbia University professor of economics, is giving a lecture called “The Case for Multilateral Free Trade.” A former advisor to the director of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and author of the book In Defense of Free Trade , Bhagwati also serves on the Academic Advisory Board for Asia of the Human Rights Watch. This lecture will certainly address the hot topics of international politics and markets from a standpoint probably little foreign to most of us more liberally-minded (not to be mistaken with neo-liberal) Sarah Lawrence kids. For anyone intrigued by questions of globalization, changing modes of production, or really anyone curious about The State of Affairs, come down to Titsworth tonight!
Here are a few web-things Bhagwati is involved with:
