Tariffs are not the cure to world trade problems

In this episode of The Sound of Economics, Rebecca Christie discusses the current global trade landscape with Penny Naas, of the German Marshall Fund and Atlantic Council, and Niclas Poitiers from Bruegel. They explore the challenges of balancing economic resilience, protectionism, and the push for green technologies amid these transformations.

They also touch on the role of the WTO in navigating these complex dynamics and the future of international trade policies.
