Taxes, tariffs and trade, three things frequently in the headlines now, are the focus of the next Social Sciences Today Forum at the University of Colorado Boulder.

The event, titled “Taxes, Tariffs and Trade,” features two experts and is scheduled for Tuesday, March 14, at 6:30 p.m. in the Ramaley Biology Building, Room N1B23 on the CU Boulder campus. Each faculty member will speak for about 15 minutes each and then answer questions. The panelists are:

  • Jeronimo Carballo, Department of Economics
  • Adrian J. Shin, Department of Political Science

Panelists will discuss various aspects of international trade agreements, including their history, how firms influence trade and tariffs, and the extent to which taxation, global migration and right-wing populism will affect the future of trade agreements.

The event is free and open to the public and is sponsored by the Center to Advance the Research and Teaching in the Social Sciences (CARTSS) and the College of Arts and Sciences. 

The Social Sciences Today Forum, a series during the school year, is designed to help the public gain broader perspectives and deeper understanding of human society and how individuals relate to the community and one another. This forum brings the knowledge and expertise of social science faculty to the greater community and allows the community to ask questions of leading scholars.
