Nebraska Ag Connection - 08/12/2022

The Clayton Yeutter Institute of International Trade and Finance announced trade expert Christine McDaniel as its first non-resident fellow.

In her new role, McDaniel will share her expertise with students, faculty, and the public through campus visits and Yeutter Institute policy projects.

"Christine's prior government experience and ongoing trade policy research combine to bridge the academic and policy communities every day, and we are thrilled to welcome her as the institute's first non-resident fellow," said Yeutter Institute director Jill O'Donnell. "She will add a new dimension to our mission of preparing the next generation of trade policy leaders."

McDaniel is currently a senior research fellow at the Mercatus Center in Arlington, Va., where her research focuses on international trade, globalization, and intellectual property rights. She has held several positions in the U.S. government, including deputy assistant secretary at the Treasury Department and senior trade economist in the White House Council of Economic Advisers, and has worked in the economic offices of the U.S. Department of Commerce, U.S. Trade Representative, and U.S. International Trade Commission.

"I am excited to join the community of the Yeutter Institute and look forward to connecting with students and faculty in service of Ambassador Yeutter's commitment to understanding and adapting to our global world," McDaniel said.

In addition to her government experience, McDaniel previously worked at Sidley Austin, LLP, a global law firm, where she was a senior economist, and also spent three years in Australia as deputy chief economist in Australia's patent office. McDaniel has written for the Wall Street Journal, Politico, The Hill and Forbes, among others, and her media appearances include CNBC, CBC, BBC, Bloomberg, Fox, and MSNBC. She holds a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Colorado and received her B.A. in Economics and Japanese Studies from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

The vision of Husker alumnus and renowned trade expert Clayton Yeutter, the Yeutter Institute connects academic disciplines related to law, business and agriculture to prepare students for leadership roles in international trade and finance, support interdisciplinary research and increase public understanding of these issues.
