Positive unilateralism

bq.  “… The osten­si­ble U.S. posi­tion is an odd one. We accept the prin­ci­ple that trade in agri­cul­tur­al goods ought to be lib­er­al­ized, and that this is a mat­ter of jus­tice as well as of effi­cien­cy. But we’re not will­ing to give any more than Europe and Japan are–and “Europe,” in this case, means “France.” Jacob Levy (a “Volokh(link to the Volokh weblog)”:http://www.volokh.com con­spir­a­tor) has an arti­cle in the “New Republic(link to JLs article)”:http://www.tnr.com/doc.mhtml?i=scholar&s=levy082003 in which he argues that it’s time for a dose of “uni­lat­er­al” lib­er­al­ism in US agri­cul­tur­al trade policy.
