L.A. vs. Seattle: Whose Pacific Rim is it?

Los Angeles and Seattle have very different histories, economies, leaders, ambitions, and demographic profiles. But both rely upon huge harbor, shipping, and transportation infrastructures as vital to metropolitan and regional growth; both claim intimate and expanding trade and other relationships with the Pacific Rim. Zócalo has gathered together a distinguished panel that includes, among others, UCLA political scientist Steve Erie, David Olson of the University of Washington, and Thomas O’Brien from the Center for International Trade and Transportation at Cal State Long Beach to discuss these two urban giants’ approach toward Asia. They’ll ask which city is better poised to take advantage of globalization in the Asian century.
