And despite what many economists claim, economics is not a science. And, as with economics, intellectual approaches to the issue of trade differ substantially. These approaches reflect differences in economic doctrine among economists, policymakers and others. This event will discuss the three competing economic doctrines that shape the trade debate: the predominant neoclassical doctrine (NC), the oppositional neo-Keynesian doctrine (NK), and the emerging innovation economics (IE) doctrine, and the way that believing in one doctrine affects your beliefs about trade policy. Join ITIF for a conversation with an expert panel about the evolution of trade policy and economics.<br /> <br /> This event is free, open to the public and complies with ethics rules. This event will be live webcast and recorded.&nbsp;</p><p>Additional panelists to be announced.&nbsp;</p><div class="field field-type-computed field-field-rel-ids-issues"> <div class="field-label">Rel IDs for issues:</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 6396 </div> </div> </div> Trade Wed, 11 Feb 2015 14:00:00 +0000 akey 6396 at http://www.itif.org The Foreign Investment Climate in China http://www.itif.org/publications/foreign-investment-climate-china <div> </div> <div> Actions need to be taken to address China’s mercantilist practices. </div> http://www.itif.org/publications/foreign-investment-climate-china#comments Developing Economies Testimony and Filings Wed, 28 Jan 2015 05:00:00 +0000 akey 6407 at http://www.itif.org FTC’s Internet of Things Report Misses the Mark http://www.itif.org/pressrelease/ftc-s-internet-things-report-misses-mark Press Releases Data Innovation Tue, 27 Jan 2015 05:00:00 +0000 akey 6406 at http://www.itif.org Congress Needs to Prioritize TPA Passage http://www.itif.org/publications/congress-needs-prioritize-tpa-passage <div> </div> <div> One of the biggest priorities for the 114th Congress must be the passage of TPA. </div> http://www.itif.org/publications/congress-needs-prioritize-tpa-passage#comments Trade Blogs & Op-eds Tue, 27 Jan 2015 05:00:00 +0000 akey 6408 at http://www.itif.org Global Trade Theory Needs an Upgrade http://www.itif.org/pressrelease/global-trade-theory-needs-upgrade Press Releases Trade Mon, 26 Jan 2015 05:00:00 +0000 akey 6400 at http://www.itif.org The Intellectual Basis of U.S. Trade Policy Trench Warfare http://www.itif.org/publications/intellectual-basis-us-trade-policy-trench-warfare <div> </div> <div> This report describes and postulates the three competing economic doctrines that shape trade policy debates. </div> http://www.itif.org/publications/intellectual-basis-us-trade-policy-trench-warfare#comments Trade Reports Mon, 26 Jan 2015 05:00:00 +0000 akey 6397 at http://www.itif.org Keystone Showdown: The Political, Economic, and Environmental Consequences of the Pipeline Fight http://www.itif.org/publications/keystone-showdown-political-economic-and-environmental-consequences-pipeline-fight <div> </div> <div> Matthew Stepp is moderating a panel titled &quot;Keystone Showdown: The Political, Economic, and Environmental Consequences of the Pipeline Fight.&quot; </div> http://www.itif.org/publications/keystone-showdown-political-economic-and-environmental-consequences-pipeline-fight#comments Energy & Climate Presentations Mon, 26 Jan 2015 05:00:00 +0000 akey 6401 at http://www.itif.org The Indian Economy at a Crossroads http://www.itif.org/publications/indian-economy-crossroads-1 <div> </div> <div> Rob Atkinson and Stephen Ezell presented the Indian Economy at a Crossroads report in New Delhi. </div> http://www.itif.org/publications/indian-economy-crossroads-1#comments Trade Presentations Mon, 26 Jan 2015 05:00:00 +0000 akey 6402 at http://www.itif.org State of the Net 2015 http://www.itif.org/publications/state-net-2015 <div> </div> <div> Daniel Castro will be participating in a panel on consumer privacy at State of the Net 2015. </div> http://www.itif.org/publications/state-net-2015#comments Cybersecurity Presentations Sun, 25 Jan 2015 05:00:00 +0000 akey 6381 at http://www.itif.org The Indian Economy at a Crossroads http://www.itif.org/events/indian-economy-crossroads-0 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-enablereg"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable Registration </div> </div> </div> <p>Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s first eight months in office has brought a reenergized focus toward boosting Indian economic growth. Taking office after both Indian GDP and productivity growth reached near-decade lows in 2013, the Modi Administration recognizes that significant reforms are needed if India is to restore the “Indian Economic Miracle”—the nearly two decades of double-digit growth the country experienced in the 1990s and 2000s. That growth sprang from India’s courageous decision in the early 1990s to abandon its post-independence statist and import substitution industrialization economic policies and instead embrace core tenets of free and competitive markets, non-discriminatory trade, and openness to flows of goods, people, technology, and capital.</p><p>As ITIF writes in a seminal new report,<em> <a href="http://www2.itif.org/2014-indian-economy-at-crossroads.pdf" target="_blank">The Indian Economy at a Crossroads</a></em>, India needs to build on these principles and embrace a modern economy path that emphasizes across-the-board productivity growth in all sectors based on competitive markets, liberalized trade, streamlined regulations, robust innovation policies, and infrastructure investment. Following this path will enable India able to generate the robust economic and employment growth it needs.</p><p>Please join ITIF, in conjunction with the <a href="http://www.observerindia.com/cms/sites/orfonline/home.html" target="_blank">Observer Research Foundation</a>, a New Delhi-based think tank, for a discussion of the report and the policy reforms needed to help India achieve more robust and sustainable levels of innovation, economic, and employment growth.</p><p><strong>Registration will open at 11:00 am and a lunch will be served following the event at 1:00 pm.&nbsp;</strong></p><p><em>Additional speakers to be announced.</em></p><p>(New Delhi time indicated in description.)
