A couple of weeks ago, I shared that I had recorded a series of 5 podcasts for Procurious, called Even Bigger Ideas. One of those pods was with renowned broadcaster, economist and Adjunct Professor Dr Linda Yueh.

In our conversation, Linda shared with me her perspective on the impact of protectionist policies on global trade, and what procurement leaders can do to prepare.
