Event Type Speaker
Organizer/AuthorModern Times
A cultural critic and frequent commentator on labor issues, NYU professor Ross positions himself in stark opposition to the enthusiastic embrace of free trade's extremes, particularly when it comes to American corporations outsourcing jobs to foreign nations. China has become one of the key suppliers of cheap labor, yet workers there suffer in ways similar to their American counterparts. His firsthand reporting and economic analysis offer a strong counterpoint to advocates of outsourcing.
