Agree with FT trade agreements over-rated (http://t.co/4JrE2NkXjx). Services agreements (esp. modes 3, 4) more relevant but disappointing.

@dikenson Also…(ham or spam?)… IND+AUS pledged to complete FTA in 2015. Still, Modi, like Xi, impressed in AUS parliament address.

In an Augustine FTA w/ CHN (http://t.co/9sGuYbol8t) our gains depend not only on what CHN left on the table but also on what AUS took off.

@snlester @MattBlunt For a century, business has touted fixed exch. rates, forgetting that capital controls always follow & strangle growth.

@scottlincicome @snlester Fair enough. But.. this is ‘signature’, and the currency has a sharp discount rate. What price fame etc.?

via TweetDeck in reply to scottlincicome

@scottlincicome @snlester OK, ‘concluded’ is ambiguous. HWB signed NAFTA but the negotiations went on some months. Will Obama try the same?

What will the Republican Congress do on #TPP? @snlester isn’t sure. Has any lame-duck concluded a big trade deal?::http://t.co/ctR6Rfo2MJ
