While the EU and US are negotiating about their new trade agreement TTIP, the future of globalization as we know it is being questioned more than ever all over the world.
Why is this the case, what has TTIP got to do with that, and where do we go from here?
Economist and opinion maker Robert Went will present his analysis and views on these questions in his open guest lecture on 24 September at the Faculty of Economics and Business. Went is Senior Research Fellow of the Dutch Scientific Council for Government Policy (WRR) and well-known for his contributions on economics for RTL News.
FEB dean professor Harry Garretsen will lead the discussion afterwards.
