The pandemic has disrupted world trade. International trade played a role first in spreading the virus. As the virus surged, international trade became part of the solution by distributing PPE and now vaccines. The pandemic has also turned the global economy upside down. Dr. Alan V. Deardorff will discuss the pandemic's effect on economies and international trade and analyze the policies that the US and other countries used, some positively but often negatively, to deal with the damage.

Dr. Deardorff is the John W. Sweetland Professor of International Economics and a professor of public policy at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. His research focuses on international trade. With Bob Stern, he developed the Michigan Model of World Production and Trade, which has been used to estimate the effects of trade agreements. Deardorff is also doing theoretical work in international trade and trade policy. He has served as a consultant to international organizations including the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development and the World Bank. Deardorff received his Ph.D. from Cornell University.
