Today on the podcast we will discuss America’s supply chains and how the Covid-19 Pandemic fundamentally altered the way we think about globalization. Why do we keep hearing the terms near-shoring and on shoring? What’s the deal with microchips and rare earth metals? And how should policy makers think about securing America’s supply chains? To answer these questions and more, we are joined by Edward Alden.
Mr. Alden is the Bernard Schwartz Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, specializing in U.S. economic competitiveness, trade, and immigration policy. He is also the author of the book Failure to Adjust: How Americans Got Left Behind in the Global Economy, which focuses on the federal government’s failure to respond effectively to competitive challenges on issues such as trade, currency, worker retraining, education, and infrastructure. We hope you enjoy this episode of the Hopkins Podcast on Foreign Affairs!
