Please join us for a presentation by Steven R. Weisman of his new book, The Great Tradeoff: Confronting Moral Conflicts in the Era of Globalization.
Mr. Weisman is Vice President for Publications and Communications at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, a position he has held since 2008. He previously served as the chief international economics correspondent of the New York Times, a member of that newspaper's editorial board, deputy foreign editor, bureau chief in Tokyo and New Delhi as well as senior White House correspondent during the first term of President Ronald Reagan. Mr. Weisman's previous books include The Great Tax Wars: How the Income Tax Transformed the Nation and Daniel Patrick Moynihan: A Portrait in Letters of an American Visionary. The Great Tradeoff blends economics, moral philosophy, history, and politics, and Mr. Weisman explores how the concepts of liberty, justice, virtue, and loyalty generate the passionate disagreements spawned by a globally integrated economy.
The session will be chaired and moderated by C. Randall Henning, Professor of International Economic Relations, School of International Service, American University. AU Seminars in Global Governance are supported by a grant from the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI).
