The Purdue University Research Center in Economics (PURCE) hosts a monthly economic policy luncheon during the academic year. In April, the center's final event of the school year, Associate Professor of Economics Anson Soderbery will discuss "U.S. Protectionism from Trump to Biden." 

Is U.S. protectionism bipartisan? Soderbery will discuss the motivation for U.S. tariffs targeting China in 2018. These so-called Trump tariffs were politically controversial at inception, but have largely been maintained throughout the Biden presidency. Recent research has shed some light on the effects of these tariffs, and this econ policy luncheon will focus on preliminary findings that add nuance to the narrative. 

Dr. Anson Soderbery's fields of specialization are international trade, industrial organization and applied econometrics. 

Space is limited for our luncheons and registration is required.
