Profs. Hosek and Peritz on "Crafting Trade Policy in the United States House of Representatives"

Professors Hosek and Peritz have published their article on "Crafting Trade Policy in the United States House of Representatives" in the Quarterly Journal of Political Science.  Among their findings: "[We] show that legislators who represent districts hardest hit by trade competition promote protectionism at a higher rate. We find strong evidence that district economic conditions reinforce the party position for Democrats and reveal intra-party cleavages among Republicans."
