Measuring the Effects of Globalization
February 28 - March 1, 2013
The Sphinx Club
1315 K Street NW, Washington, DC
Globalization—characterized by international supply chains and rapid shifts in the sourcing of goods and services across countries—is perhaps the most important economic phenomenon of our time.
U.S. statistical agencies collect data on imports, exports, and prices that are used to shape policymakers' understanding of the economy. However, the rapid pace of globalization challenges both the conceptual framework and the data methodologies used by the statistical agencies.
This conference will discuss new research that addresses both the magnitude and conceptual aspects of measuring the impact of globalization.
Food & refreshments will be served.
