Lori M. Wallach has been director of Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch since 1995.
Wallach is an expert on the operations and outcomes of trade policies such as NAFTA, WTO, Fast Track Trade Promotion Authority and more. She is steeped in the domestic and international politics of current trade negotiations and disputes, including TPP and TAFTA/TTIP. Wallach works closely with Congress and civil society, scholars, and activists in the U.S and developing countries to foster the growing debate about implications of different models of globalization on jobs, off-shoring, wages, the environment, public health and food safety; equality and social justice and democratically accountable governance.
Wallach (shown below on Bill Moyers Journal in June 2007) has appeared on MSNBC, CNN, NPR, ABC, CNBC, Fox News, PBS, Bloomberg TV, BBC and C-SPAN, and has been quoted extensively in publications such as The New York Times, The Economist, Forbes, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, USA Today, Bloomberg, and The National Journal.
