Europe’s Trade Policy: Can a Phoenix Rise From the Ashes? Let’s Hope Not. Let’s Stop the TPPA too! 

Public opinion is being given taken seriously by Northern hemisphere politicians. What’s wrong with our bunch? Stop The TPP! 

There is little hope to rescue the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) with the United States, an arrangement once envisioned to be a ground-breaking agreement between the world’s two largest economic blocs. Public protests against TTIP also seem close to bringing down the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) with Canada and it is uncertain whether even this deal, which was not thought to be controversial, will be ratified. Social Europe

 

No Time for Trade Fundamentalism.

“There is great danger that the system will break down … or that it will collapse in a grim replay of the 1930s.” by Dani Rodrik

The nation-state seems intent on reasserting itself. Project Syndicate
