Will COVID-19 Bring Industrial Policy Back in Vogue?
April 07, 2021 • 12:30 PM • Virtual
Join us for a panel discussion on Industrial Policy and how COVID-19 has impacted debates on this topic. Scott Lincicome, Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute and Visiting Lecturer at Duke Law, argues government interference has only hurt manufacturing. Oren Cass, former domestic policy director for Mitt Romney's presidential campaign and the founder and executive director of the think tank American Compass, believes that the U.S. government should intervene more aggressively in the manufacturing industry. Caleb Watney, Director of Innovation Policy for the Progressive Policy Institute and former technology policy fellow at the R Street Institute, will similarly discuss how government intervention often harms industry, as well as how the pandemic is harming America's long-standing innovation institutions, and what we can do to reverse this damage. Sponsored by the Duke Law Federalist Society. Co-sponsored by the Duke Initiative for Science and Society, the Duke Program in American Values and Institutions, the Duke Political Science Department, the Duke Philosophy, Politics, & Economics Program, and the Duke Law Center for Innovation Policy.
