Join James C. Benton and Robert Parmet for a virtual event celebrating the release of Benton's new book, Fraying Fabric: How Trade Policy and Industrial Decline Transformed America. Benton looks at how shortsighted trade and economic policy in the 1940s-1970s led to the decline of the US textile and apparel industries and how that decline led to 21st century populism.
