To promote prosperity among all income groups, the U.S. government should adopt an industrial policy.

Industrial Policy Back in Vogue?

Will COVID-19 Bring Industrial Policy Back in Vogue?”  That’s the headline in a recent column in The Diplomat.

The columnist writes:  “The pandemic has forced an overdue discussion on whether too much faith has been placed in what we have inaccurately considered to be ‘free’ markets’ and ‘free’ trade.”

Should the U.S. implement an industrial policy?  Oren Cass, author of The Once and Future Worker, thinks so.

On Wednesday, January 13, at 6:00 pm ET, Oren Cass will take the affirmative on the resolution: To promote prosperity among all income groups, the U.S. government should adopt an industrial policy. 

Opposing the resolution: Scott Lincicome, senior fellow at the Cato Institute.
