@howserob It would be crazy to ratify Indian unilateralism with a WTO waiver (esp. for a policy that transmits losses to the poor elsewhere)

@snlester Enforceable treaties are functional. Agree that may mean ‘deference’ not ‘compliance’ (). I bet we’ll regret the old hegemon!

via YoruFukurou in reply to snlester

@snlester OK, but ‘jaw jaw’ is errant, little-availing (UN 60 yrs). Sovereigns will always project views, power: treaties a preferable means
