More Stubborn Facts Coming on Friday

By June 22, 2005Dobbs Watch

Dobbs Watch On Friday at the NAM, our Manufacturing Institute will sponsor a forum on “International Trade and Jobs”. This will be a perfect antidote to those of you suffering Dobbs fatigue, as it will present facts — anybody remember facts? — about the link between international trade and jobs. Unfortunately for Lou, you’ll probably hear about things like exchange rates and the high domestic costs — non-wage — of production here in the US. Sadly, there won’t be a sweatshop or an illegal immigrant in sight. The Dobbsians will be truly disappointed.

The forum will feature Martin Baily, former chair of the President’s Council of Economic Advisers, Jerry Jasinowksi, President of the Manufacturing Institute(and a Ph.D. economist himself) and Frank Vargo, the NAM’s VP for International Trade. In short, there will be three pretty smart people who don’t have to worry about ratings.
