Episode Details

A center-right economic policy agenda has traditionally meant a focus on lower marginal tax rates, fiscal prudence, an openness to immigration, free trade and globalization. In recent years however, there has been significant change in the Republican Party’s stance on some of these issues — especially trade and immigration. Michael Strain of the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) joins EconoFact Chats to highlight some of the factors driving these changes, and to discuss whether current Republican views on trade and immigration are likely to stay over coming election cycles

Michael is the Director of Economic Policy Studies, and the Arthur F. Burns Scholar in Political Economy at AEI. He also serves on EconoFact’s Board of Advisors.
