Homi Kharas, deputy director of the Global Economy and Development program and one of the authors of Brookings’s new “11 Global Debates” series, examines how issues of globalization are playing out in the 2016 presidential election.

Also in this episode, John Hudak, deputy director of the Center for Effective Public Management and a senior fellow in Governance Studies, reflects on the final presidential debate, the shape of the race, and the down-ballot contests.

Finally, Jon Valant, fellow in Governance Studies and the Brown Center on Education Policy, explains what inspired him to become a scholar of education policy and why he thinks education policy builds the foundation that solves many social problems.
