In December 2010, the United States initiated a landmark dispute at the
WTO challenging a range of Chinese subsidies to domestic renewable
energy manufacturers. Although the dispute is currently still in the
consultation phase, it represents a significant step by the United
States government and could be a harbinger of things to come as China
continues its aggressive push towards clean energy infrastructure and
development. What are the environmental, economic and geopolitical
implications of this case? Join our distinguished panelists for a
wide-ranging discussion of the dispute and its context within
international trade law and economics.

•Joseph Stiglitz, University Professor, Columbia University; Chair,
Columbia University Committee on Global Thought; Nobel Laureate in
Economics
