Reminder: Cato Event Tomorrow (Tues) on US Subsidy Policy and My New Paper

Yes, I know I've been relentlessly (and shamelessly) flogging my new paper over the last couple weeks, but you may have forgotten that I'll be speaking on it at 4p tomorrow (Tuesday, October 9) at the Cato Institute in Washington, DC.  I'll be joined by the Washington Examiner's Tim Carney (who writes constantly about the perils of US subsidies) and trade lawyer John Magnus (who has ample experience in the intersection between international trade law and subsidies).  The event description on Cato's website focuses on the former issue (because, let's face it, it's a much sexier topic), but Magnus' addition ensures that there will also be plenty of substantive discussion about the benefits and failings of global anti-subsidy rules and US anti-subsidy (countervailing duty) policy.

You can register for the event here, and they also allow walk-ins if your schedule just happens to open up at the last minute.  The event promises to be a lively discussion (I even made a powerpoint!), and, hey, free drinks afterwards. 

For those of you not in the DC area, the Cato event page will also have a link to the live feed, so you can watch online (or later). 

I look forward to seeing you there.
