@sdonnan WTO? Even Mega-Regs confirm relevance of the rules, standards that they extend by reference. Danger is compliance may deteriorate.

@sdonnan Not so much: nothing changes. (Bugger!) Still was under-powered. Single undertaking is dead. Good! Been a problem all along.

@alanbeattie Well, half fortunate, anyway. “Explicit consensus” (India’s obscure price for the consensus) was the reef that wrecked Cancún.

I’m an optimist out of experience, not temperament. I recall the big room in Doha (2001) when India stuck it out to the next-to-last moment.

@SimonEvenett Still, most will register that the WTO’s first Agreement in 20 years failed to get up. That’s a (probably) fatal result.

@tgemiles Tom, if something more from me wd. help, let me know. Happy to help. Going to bed in an hour or so, however :-)

@SimonEvenett @sdonnan @tgemiles Astonishing thing is that India got what it needed at Bali (4 year ‘get out of gaol’ card).

@SimonEvenett @sdonnan @tgemiles Agree non-members may call the shots on plurilaterals. But WTO qualified majority procedures also relevant.

@sdonnan @tgemiles ’s strongest supporters are @iccwbo_org. Chair in 2015 will be an Indian,
Sunil Bharti Mittal. Maybe worth a call.

@SimonEvenett @sdonnan @tgemiles “.. going ahead without India means she free rides and seen 2 be rewarded”. True. Cooperation is fragile.

@tgemiles India had 1.2% share of world trade in 2010-11. Does it matter if they opt out of ? To world trade? Not so much. To WTO? Yes!

via YoruFukurou in reply to tgemiles

@tgemiles @sdonnan @SimonEvenett … We say it works (especially if subsidy cuts included). But WTO compliance may mean India/China free ride.

@tgemiles @sdonnan @SimonEvenett The 2010 paper I wrote with Andy Stoler on critical mass in an agriculture agreement:icrier.org/pdf/10-025%20P…

via YoruFukurou in reply to tgemiles

@SimonEvenett @sdonnan critical mass is intriguing, potentially valuable e.g. in Ag ( even w/out India of China) but still problematic.
