International Trade Law
International Trade LawI would like you to write a response to the following question:
MULTILATERAL VS. REGIONAL AND BILATERAL TRADE AGREEMENTS: WHICH IS BETTER?
This is a policy-based assignment, so feel free to make whatever arguments you wish with respect to multilateralism (the WTO) and regionalism (for example, the EU or ASEAN) or bilateralism (for example, US/UK, or the new Trump policy on using bilaterals instead of multilaterals). Later in the semester we will look at how the WTO makes special arrangements for regional trade agreements, but the legal issues are not our main concern in this assignment. I am looking for policy arguments either in favor of or against using big global agreements as opposed to smaller regional arrangements.
Please give me AT LEAST ONE SOURCE (a book, an article, an essay, a newspaper article, etc., with a date and page cite) at the end of your essay.
Please write a MAXIMUM of TWO TYPEWRITTEN PAGES, double-spaced, 12-point font.
