About the event
In this inaugural Ford Policy Union debate, Peter Navarro, the director and producer of the movie Death by China, will argue China's unfair trade and membership in the World Trade Organization are the primary causes of job losses and weak growth in the United States. Phil Potter will make the case that the relationship with China has led to gains and losses for both sides and that China is not primarily to blame for recent economic challenges in the United States.

Peter Navarro, Professor, The Paul Merage School of Business, University of California
Phil Potter, Assistant Professor, Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy, University of Michigan
