Press Clips: Gordon Hanson and 'The China Shock'

When Gordon Hanson’s paper “The China Shock” dropped last month, it rattled media regarding free trade with China and what that means for the presidential hopefuls. Here, we list press clips citing the professor at the UC San Diego School of Global Policy and Strategy in the months that followed.


  1. “The China Shock: Learning from Labor Market Adjustment to Large Changes in Trade”—which Hanson co-authored with David Autor, associate department head of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Department of Economics, and David Dorn, professor of economics at University of Zurich—was published as Working Paper No. 21906 on the National Bureau of Economic Research in January 2016.
