Assistant professor Laura Connolly (SBE) will present "Labor Market Dynamics and Trade with China: The Case of Brazil."
Many countries continue to integrate into the world economy, increasing their reliance on international trade. Increased trade often creates large gains dispersed across the economy and losses focused on some sectors and workers. The negative impacts of trade can be mitigated if workers can easily adjust to the changing landscape, but the ability to adjust may differ across worker characteristics, such as gender and education. In this presentation, Conolly analyzes the impact of both increased imports from China and exports to China on labor market adjustments for different subpopulations in Brazil.
Connolly is an assistant professor of economics at Michigan Tech. Her current work examines a variety of employment dynamics in Brazil, including what types of firms create stable jobs and the impact of increased trade with China on labor market outcomes and dynamics.
