Is free trade good for the poor?
Does removing all barriers to American markets and eliminating government support for domestic producers help those most in need?
How should America reduce poverty and help the poor prosper?

Find out during this episode of Conservative Conversations with ISI on Wednesday, July 15, at 7 p.m. ET.
Author and policy analyst Oren Cass will debate professor of economics Victor Claar on the role—and limits—of free markets in reducing poverty.
Cass has made a name for himself by challenging the long-held conservative economic consensus. With his new organization, American Compass, he aims to restore an emphasis on “the importance of family, community, and industry to the nation’s liberty and prosperity.”
Claar, meanwhile, is a leading thinker on the moral framework needed to sustain a free economy.
Spots for this debate are limited and first come, first served. So register now.
