La carrera presidencial estadounidense se está calentando, pero todo indica que es casi seguro que Hillary Clinton va a ganar la nominación demócrata y se encaminará hacia la victoria en noviembre. Macri se siente optimista de poder promover su agenda internacional con un aliado de ideas afines.

Pasemos rápido al día de hoy. Macri se debe de estar retorciendo las manos frente a un contexto internacional que es mucho más desafiante de lo que probablemente anticipó. Aun así, no todo está perdido para la inminente presidencia argentina del G20.

En la Cumbre del G20 en Hamburgo el mes pasado, Trump ya se las ingenió para aislarse de los otros 19 líderes, incluido Macri, al mantenerse firme en su decisión de retirarse del acuerdo climático de París -un acuerdo que prácticamente toda la comunidad internacional considera irreversible.

    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.

    A Better British Story

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future
