NEISD - Community Education

ALIR - Today's Global Economy

We will examine globalization's effects on countries, communities and people. The sessions will explore how the past 25 years of trade agreements like NAFTA have changed the rules of business and affected US jobs and wages, including the outsourcing of jobs to other countries. Class conversations about how exports and imports are used in the global battle for profit will be placed in context of their longer-term effect on communities and people. (Max 30)
