Recipient of the Barnhard Harms Prize from the Institute for World Economics, economist Robert Feenstra will give a brief, TED-style talk entitled "How Big is Chiang?" The talk will immediately be followed by a Q&A session where you can ask Dr. Feenstra questions about the talk, his international economics textbook, or economics in general. Please submit questions through the community before-hand for a better chance at them being answered.
