    Trade is not a zero-sum game, in fact, many would say that trade is a positive sum game (why would a country sign an agreement they don’t see as beneficial to their interests?). But yet, economic nationalism is on the rise, as evidenced by the current trade policies of the United States. Join us on February 8, 2019, as The Risk Institute, Moritz College of Law, Fisher College of Business and the College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences examine the legal, business and economic consequences of U.S. trade policy through an interdisciplinary lens.

    Are you a positive leader? Do you wonder how others think about your attitude as a leader? A quick test is to observe the way people react to you when you walk into a room. Are people happy to see you? Do they want to talk to you? Or do they quickly make themselves scarce? If they run when they see you, it's time for an attitude check.
