• Why US changed its Trade Policy?

    Martin Wolf四月初寫了一篇文章評論南韓與美國之間的FTA(全文在此),並且認為對比於WTO在Doha談判上的失敗,這股FTA風潮根本是捨本逐末。他的說法是:
    Why do I object? Is such trade liberalisation not precisely what most economists interested in trade believe in? The answer to this question is “yes and no”: yes, because liberal trade is desirable, but no, because this form of liberalisation is not necessarily a move towards liberal trade. As Jagdish Bhagwati of Columbia University has argued, “free trade agreements” should, instead, be called “preferential trade agreements”. I would prefer “discriminatory trade agreements”.
    這篇文章引起不同意見。

    適巧剛剛發現這集的University Channel Podcast就是在談美國貿易政策在新政治氛圍下的轉變,就把這兩個先擺在一起聽聽。

    鐵志這篇「全球化、工資與社會政策」、這期經濟學人的社論
    「 America's fear of China」,可以跟這個研講參在一起看。

    才隔一天,經濟學人的社論就有翻譯出來了。翻得不是很好,但是有原文。湊合著看吧。
