2018 Cadario Lecture: Populism and the Future of Globalization – From the Rialto to Wall Street

Event Update: Daniel Trefler to Replace Dani Rodrick for 2018 Cadario Lecture

Populism and the Future of Globalization

The 2018 Cadario Visiting Lecture

Unfortunately, an emergency has prevented Professor Dani Rodrik from traveling and he will be unable to deliver tonight’s Cadario Lecture. Instead, award winning University of Toronto economist Daniel Trefler will present on “Populism and Globalization: From the Rialto to Wall Street,” and will explore the conditions that have weakened the economic, political and social pillars of liberal democracy and fuelled a populist response.

Daniel Trefler is the J. Douglas and Ruth Grant Canada Research Chair in Competitiveness and Prosperity at the Rotman School of Management and a Senior Research Fellow at the Canadian Institute for Advanced Studies. Professor Trefler is an internationally respected trade economist, known for his path-breaking contributions to fundamental research. This research has been instrumental in the design and pursuit of trade agreements that promote productivity, innovation and investment while minimizing the harmful effects on workers and the most disadvantaged. In recent years he has advised Global Affairs Canada on national policies towards foreign direct investment and helped to frame the document that launched the Canada-EU trade agreement. The importance and influence of Professor Trefler’s work has been recognized through numerous distinctions including the 2016 Killam Prize in Social Sciences, the 2016 Bank of Canada Fellowship Award, a Canada Research Chair, and all three major awards of the Canadian Economics Association.

On behalf of all of us at here at the School of Public Policy & Governance, we sincerely apologize for the abrupt programming change. We look forward to welcoming you this evening at what is sure to be a compelling exploration of the forces underlying the rise of populism and the potential for policy responses.
