Post Road Meeting Room

Though arguably the most advanced economy in the world, the United States still uses centuries-old numbers to measure trade. These antique numbers mangle understanding of the U.S.-China trade relationship, shrinking America’s true economic size and competitiveness, while swelling China’s. Bad numbers give rise to bad policies that ultimately kill U.S. jobs and cede market share to China. What other tools can the United States employ to counter China’s unfair trade practices? There are several available, yet they remain mostly unused.


Prepare to discuss the world. Great Decisions is America's largest discussion program on world affairs. Forsyth County Public Library and the University of North Georgia will present information and lead discussions on a range of fascinating geopolitical topics. Copies of the Great Decisions Briefing Book and DVD are available for checkout at the library.

Each session will be held at the Post Road Library, 5010 Post Road, Cumming and will be led by a member of the UNG faculty.
