China, East Asia, and Global Rebalancing

La Follette School Working Paper No. 2012-006

As talk of trade wars and tariffs dominate the news media, you will probably find La Follette School faculty member Menzie Chinn offering researched and reasoned analysis to the narrative. Chinn, a professor of public affairs and economics, is a primary source on federal trade policy among the nation’s top publications.

Professor Menzie Chinn of the La Follette School of Public Affairs and UW–Madison’s Department of Economics on Saturday presented a paper about global current account imbalances during the influential Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City’s Economic Policy Symposium in Jackson Hole, Wyo.

La Follette School faculty member Menzie Chinn served as a Wim Duisenberg fellow at the European Central Bank (ECB) in Frankfurt, Germany, doing research on exchange rate modeling in July and August.

From “Brexit” to U.S. presidential candidates talking about immigration, from the latest job reports to the latest dip in oil prices, every event that makes the headlines carries an economic impact, and a blog co-authored by a UW-Madison professor analyzes and contextualizes these newsworthy happenings.
