Dr. David M. Olson

Portrait of Dr. David M. OlsonDr. David M. Olson (professor emeritus, Political Science) wrote “The ‘Intermestic’ Politics of Trade: the Case of the USA” in “International Trade Negotiations and Domestic Politics: the Itermestic Politics of Trade Liberalization,” published by Routledge. Olson’s chapter examines U.S. Congressional action on free trade agreements in the Bush and Obama Administrations under conditions of changing party control in both Congress and the White House. His chapter, including current “fast track” trade legislation, is part of a three-year review of the Doha Round of the World Trade Organization, sponsored by the International Research Institute of Stavanger, Norway. Other researchers came from China, the European Union, India and Norway.
