Jagdish Bhagwati’s intellectual arc has taken him from
profound theoretical analysis of international trade to deep insights into the
political economy of globalization. No economist now living has displayed so
potent a combination of academic analysis and practical wisdom.

3. In-city Transportation: The best mode of transportation between the hotel and Columbia is taxi.
Taxis are relatively cheap in NYC and if you will keep your receipts, we will
reimburse you. For the more adventurous, the NYC subway system is very
efficient--you can go anywhere within the city for $2.00. The nearest
station from the Lucerne is Broadway and 79th St. You take red train #1 or
9 going uptown and get down at 116th St. station.
4. Transportation to and from Airport: The best means of transportation between airport and hotel is also taxi
since the cheaper alternatives are unlikely to be worth the inconvenience.
5. Presentation Facilities: We will have a projector for PowerPoint presentations.
This projector also allows you to project PDF, Word or other files so that we
will not have the traditional projector used to display transparencies. If
you wish to send files in advance, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
6. Instructions to the Chair and Panelists: Each
panelist should limit the presentation to 15 minutes. The chair may choose
to speak for up to 10 minutes. For most sessions, this will leave 20
minutes or more for discussion from the floor.
