Ambassador Richard Bernal joins Dan Runde in this episode of Building the Future. Ambassador Bernal was the Jamaican Ambassador to the United States from 1991 to 2001 and has a lauded career as a professional economist and professor. The episode dives into Ambassador Bernal’s new book, Corporate versus National Interest in U.S. Trade Policy: Chiquita and Caribbean Bananas. The pair talk about the book’s study of the Clinton Administration’s decision to engage in a trade war with the European Union over bananas that were not even produced in the U.S., and the similarities in economic decisions today.

This fall, Building the Future will move back to a bi-weekly schedule, so please join us for our next episode on 9/15.
