Mr. Bacchus, the former chairman of the Appellate Body of the World Trade Organization, spoke at the Hotel Washington about his book, Trade and Freedom, published by Cameron May Ltd. In this 513-page collection of essays, the author argues that open trade plays an essential role in creating freedom because it fosters economic growth, which in turn leads to greater opportunities and choices for citizens. Mr. Bacchus also contends that it is necessary for supporters of free trade to back programs that help workers adapt to a changing economy, such as educational assistance and universal healthcare. He says that governing bodies like the WTO should open their deliberations to the public. Following prepared remarks, Mr. Bacchus responded to questions from the audience. close
