President Trump has announced that the government will reopen for three weeks, as negotiations continue to bring a lasting solution to the longest partial shutdown in U.S. history.

Can the president and a politically divided Congress reach a deal that meets his demand for border wall funding? What’s the economic impact of a ‘temporary’ reopening -- will the economy bounce back if there’s still a risk of another shutdown? And how will the shutdown aftereffects sway voters as the 2020 presidential election heats up?

Political science professors Meena Bose, Craig Burnett, Richard Himelfarb and Rosanna Perotti and economics professor Herman Berliner can provide expert commentary about what to watch for in the coming months.
