Athene’s Restaurant, 3618 West Broadway has kindly agreed to accommodate our MP Breakfast Connections while Enigma Restaurant is closed for renovations.
Please join MP Joyce Murray at her Friday, September 15, 2017 MP Breakfast Connections with special guest speaker Dr. James Brander: Let’s Make a Deal: Can Canada Trump NAFTA?
As Canada, US and Mexico prepare to reopen NAFTA, much is at stake for Canada. Since the deal came into force in 1994, the combined gross domestic product of the three countries has more than tripled. Despite these gains, in the US NAFTA has become a symbol of manufacturing job losses. A more protectionist America will pose problems for both Mexican and Canadian negotiators.
James Brander is an economist and is the Asia-Pacific Professor of International Business in the Sauder School of Business at UBC. He is known as co-author of a seminal 1986 article in The American Economic Review, on “Oligopoly and Financial Structure: The Limited Liability Effect”, as well as his work in international trade with Barbara Spencer, particularly the Brander–Spencer model.
Let’s hear from Dr. Brander what’s at stake for Canada in these negotiations!
