Each month, come to Café Des Taxis to have a drink and discussion with your professors and other experts about important events happening in the world. Share your questions and your views, and join the long tradition of politics in the pub. In September we are going to discuss the topic of trade wars.

While some claim that trade wars are beneficial and easy to win, others disagree. Regardless, the world seems to be in the midst of one. At the core of the discussion are terms and concepts that deserve a comprehensive understanding. What is meant by “trade” in today’s global economy? What, then, would constitute a “trade war”? What are the costs and benefits of peaceful trade versus restrictions on such activity? Where do sanctions fit into all of this? Come discuss these questions, and ask your own.

The lead professor will be Lubomir Lizal, President of AAU, Associate Professor of Economics, and former member of the Czech National Bank.
