What will the outcome of the Doha round look like and mean for international relations in a globalising world? Can the WTO survive its failure?

US and China emerge from trade talks without agreement

Geopolitics involving North Korea is said to be the cause of the failure. Talks included US complaints about China's trade in steel and its subsidies for state owned enterprises. China wants to reverse US refusals to sell Beijing advanced technology products.

Who are these governments who refuse to be accountable for the trillions of public money they steward? Will Germany tell us?

In big week for trade policy, US-China talks should take the cake
Ensuring that commitments are followed through in practice is key

A long-standing weakness of global finance, still not addressed despite 2008 for example. The repeated pleas to the G20 from the international accounting community have been dismissed by national politics - but who are these nations who refuse to be accountable? Germany should be able to tell us.

Unless international politics act. Germany did the G20 and the EU a disservice this month.

Just because you can build it does not mean you can keep it. Boats and planes are anti fragile ?

OBOR certainly raises questions about the future of the international order, the European Union, Brexit, the G20 and its chairmanship etc.

Li Says China to Meet Growth Goals, Vows Free Trade Support
Li’s speech was a robust defense of globalization and a thinly veiled rebuttal of the narrative adopted by U.S. President Donald Trump, who has accused trading partners, including China, of unfair trading practices. It also had echoes of President Xi Jinping who also used the WEF’s Davos event in January to champion globalization. China also used a Group of 20 meeting in Germany in March to push back, unsuccessfully, against U.S. efforts to water down language of resisting protectionism.

The LSE presentation on the end of globalisation told us that at Davos this year President Xi Jinping called simply for economic globalisation, not political/economic globalisation. Rules free finance seems to be the future, in a world where RCEP trade, AIIB banking to fund OBOR, and SCO will likely be the major players - at least in eurasia.
