Solow, Bhagwati, Krugman Evaluate the Human Cost of Trade, Economic Liberalization

Three of the world’s top economists --Columbia’s Jagdish Bhagwati, MIT’s Robert Solow and Princeton’s Paul Krugman  --- came together on April 10 to discuss the forces of globalization that have affected immigration trends, by allowing goods, technology and people to move more easily across national borders. While “we may not be able to help the first generation of workers affected by globalization, we may be able to help their children,” Bhagwati said.
