What does the phrase “Trade Wars” really mean when we hear about it on the news? Recent events have highlighted ongoing trade wars between the United States and countries abroad. But what does that mean on a global scale? Are trade wars a recent phenomenon or have they occurred before? How might this affect US relations to Japan, in particular that Nebraska has strong business ties to the country? Find out the answers to these questions and more at this lecture presentation by Wes Peterson, a UNL Agricultural Economics professor. After the presentation, there will be a brief Q & A to further explore this interesting and timely topic.

Dr. Wes Peterson has degrees from UC Berkeley, Princeton and Michigan States as the basis of his professional insight into the fields of economics, agriculture and international trade. Beyond his capacities as a professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln since 1990, Dr. Peterson has also acted as a consultant abroad in Europe, Africa, Asia and Central America. He has written two books and numerous journal articles and other publications covering the subjects of international trade, agricultural policy, economic development and ethics.
