A really good listen! Excellent for people trying to understand fights about global trade.
Straight talk from experts + entertaining and current
This podcast is excellent and it couldn't come at a more important time. The podcast hosts are academic experts who also have practicioner experience. They're also easy to listen to, straightforward, and honest. The hosts strike a nice balance between current events, relevant historical background, findings from economics research, and their own experience. This is going into my regular podcast rotation.
This is an excellent resource for anyone who wants to better understand current debates in International Trade. Couldn't come at better time, when trade controversies are front and center in the news. Entertaining and engaging, I'm really looking forward to playing this to my students in my International Trade class. But even if you're not studying Trade, this will be a fun way to better understand trade issues that may have have always seemed a bit fuzzy and opaque. Enyoy!
