Global Business and Policy Forum “Trade Wars and the Impact on the U.S. and California”

Although progress has been made with renewing NAFTA and agreements have been reached with Mexico and Canada, the risks associated with ever increasing tariffs between China and the U.S. could have grave consequences globally. What benefits come from the international exchange of goods and services, which are risked by a trade war? What is unfair trade, and which countries pay for the taxes and other barriers to trade? Who are the winners and losers from a trade war? What policy responses are appropriate for dealing with bilateral imbalances, if any? What are the consequences of tariffs targeting selected countries and what allows an "American First" agenda that was not an option after WWII? Join Ed Leamer, UCLA Anderson distinguished economist and Stephen Cheung former director of international trade at the Port of Los Angeles and now president of World Trade Center Los Angeles for a moderated discussion with Sebastian Edwards on the trade wars occurring around the world and implications for the global economy. They will specifically address these questions and the ramifications for the United States and impact of trade policy on business investment in California and Los Angeles. This forum is a collaborative partnership between the Center for Global Management and the UCLA School of Law's Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy. Open to UCLA Anderson and Law School Students and by Invitation Only. RSVP required. For more details and to register >>

From Campus to Market: Technology Transfer in the United States and Israel

How do cutting-edge innovations make their way from university research labs into products sold by for-profit companies? How does the path of technology transfer differ in the United States and "Start-Up Nation"? Amir Naiberg, the president & CEO of UCLA Technology Development Corporation and UCLA's technology transfer head will share insights from his experiences in Israel and compare the two countries' systems for turning university innovations into commercialized products. He will provide insights from his experience working at the Weizmann Institute of Science's technology transfer company and serving in his current position at UCLA. During his remarks, Naiberg will also compare the two countries in terms of entrepreneurial ecosystems, legal, cultural, and financial issues. This event is sponsored by the Younes and Soraya Nazarian Center for Israeli Studies, the UCLA Anderson Center for Global Management and the UCLA School of Law's International and Comparative Law Program.
