REMI luncheons are held each month at Metro Center, 700 12th Street, NW, Suite 700, Washington, D.C. 20005.
President Trump stunned policy makers and the markets with his announcement of aluminum and steel tariffs. The news raises questions about tariffs and their impacts on not only the protected industries, but international supply chains and the broader U.S. economy.
REMI cordially invites you to our monthly Washington, D.C. policy luncheon presentation on Thursday, March 29th, 2018 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. when REMI CEO and Chief Economist Frederick Treyz, Ph.D. will explore the use of dynamic economic modeling in evaluating the regional impacts of trade policies.
For his tariff presentation, Dr. Treyz will discuss approaches for using the REMI model to evaluate the total economic benefits and costs of tariffs, and how to analyze the implications on the national and state level. Taking a closer look at one example of economic impact analysis, he will consider a report by NERA Economic Consulting, which estimated outcomes from a 7 percent across-the-board tariff on aluminum imports using the REMI model.REGISTER FOR THIS LUNCHEON [menu_3_description] => Array (  => Array ( [speakers_name] => Frederick Treyz, Ph.D. [speakers_designation] => REMI [speakers_image] => Array ( [ID] => 2191 [id] => 2191 [title] => Fred Bio [filename] => Fred-Bio-e1524080879652.png [filesize] => 100121 [url] => https://www.remi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/Fred-Bio-e1524080879652.png [link] => https://www.remi.com/leadership/fred-treyz/fred-bio/ [alt] => [author] => 1 [description] => [caption] => [name] => fred-bio [status] => inherit [uploaded_to] => 152 [date] => 2018-02-06 20:06:00 [modified] => 2018-08-07 20:03:03 [menu_order] => 0 [mime_type] => image/png [type] => image [subtype] => png [icon] => https://www.remi.com/wp-includes/images/media/default.png [width] => 275 [height] => 274 [sizes] => Array ( [thumbnail] => https://www.remi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/Fred-Bio-150x150.png [thumbnail-width] => 150 [thumbnail-height] => 150 [medium] => https://www.remi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/Fred-Bio-300x299.png [medium-width] => 300 [medium-height] => 299 [medium_large] => https://www.remi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/Fred-Bio-e1524080879652.png [medium_large-width] => 275 [medium_large-height] => 274 [large] => https://www.remi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/Fred-Bio-e1524080879652.png [large-width] => 275 [large-height] => 274 [1536x1536] => https://www.remi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/Fred-Bio-e1524080879652.png [1536x1536-width] => 275 [1536x1536-height] => 274 [2048x2048] => https://www.remi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/Fred-Bio-e1524080879652.png [2048x2048-width] => 275 [2048x2048-height] => 274 ) ) [speakers_description] =>
