Gary Herrigel, “Is Global Interdependence Sustainable?”
October 18, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm
Global political economic interdependence is a fact, and sustainability of developed domestic political economies hinges on sustainability of this interdependence. Reversal of current global interdependence would involve deep and enduring adjustment pressures on all states that could exacerbate both within and between country inequalities, intensify social and political conflicts, produce unrest and conflict among states. The current course is not sustainable, and a serious reform is needed. The talk will address various perspectives on these issues, including macroeconomic imbalances and geopolitical reordering.
