If the 2016 election changed the way America talks about trade, corporate taxation and immigration, economist Kimberly Clausing wants a reset. In her new book, “Open,” she tries to identify where our American discourse on trade, immigration and global capital went astray, and argues that free trade deals, higher corporate taxes and immigrants are being falsely portrayed as the cause of the economic and social insecurity felt by many Americans. This week on Wake we’re joined by Reed College economist Kim Clausing to hear her diagnosis of what’s actually plaguing modern American economic life and what can be done about it.
