将这一问题如此定性反映了需要向狐疑的国会兜售的方案甚至会更加有限、更加临时性。以色列对整个谈判过程非常不满,在过去3个月中,以色列总理内塔尼亚胡一直在表示这个观点,并在国会亲以色列派中引起了强烈的回响。

    Whither the Multilateral Trading System?

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.
