Which members of Congress most consistently support the freedom of Americans to trade and invest in the global economy—free of market‐​distorting subsidies and barriers? Cato trade scholar Daniel Griswold will reveal who in the 110th Congress earned the title of “Free Trader” and demonstrate the new Cato web feature, “Free Trade, Free Markets,” which allows users to search an up‐​to‐​date database containing more than a decade of votes. Sen. Judd Gregg (R-NH), one of the Senate’s most distinguished and consistent supporters of free trade, will offer remarks on the prospects for trade legislation in the 111th Congress and beyond.

Due to the overwhelming public response to this program we are unable to accept additional reservations. A video of the event will be posted to this website within one week. Thank you for your interest in our programs.
