The new US president needs a fresh approach to trade

10 October 2016: In their article The New Rules of the Road: A Progressive Approach to Globalisation, Jared Bernstein and Lori Wallach argue that a new approach to trade is needed when a new President takes office in the US.
They point out that free trade agreements like the TPP are far from synonymous with trade itself, and that new rules are needed which prioritise the economic needs of low and middle income families while “preserving the democratic, accountable policymaking processes that are essential to creating and maintaining the environmental, consumer, labor, and human-rights policies on which we all rely.”
