Great Decisions Zoom Discussion: Global Supply Chains and National Security
Tuesday, March, 2
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

The shutdown of global supply chains due to the Covid-19 pandemic brought to the fore an issue with the high level of global economic interdependence: what happens when one country is the main source for an item, say face masks, and then can no longer supply the item? Countries suddenly unable to meet the demand for certain supplies are faced with growing calls for economic nationalism. What are some of the lasting effects that the pandemic could have on global supply chains and trade? How would this affect national security? 

Great Decisions is America's largest discussion program on world affairs.? The program model involves reading the Great Decisions?briefing book, watching the?video and meeting in a?discussion group?to discuss the most critical global issues facing America today. Join us in a zoom 'living room' to talk about world events that impact the United States. Meeting information will be provided by email to registered participants; full program info is available at https://blog.poudrelibraries.org/great-decisions/  
  
Based on the Foreign Policy Association program information. More about the Foreign Policy Association program is at http://www.fpa.org/great_decisions/.
