On the question of culpability for WTO’s malaise, re-reading @alanbeattie ‘s “Who’s in Charge Here” (amazon.com/Whos-Charge-He…)

@dikenson Agree. ‘Critial mass’, ‘plurilateral’… something that has a chance of multilateral application (i.e. not the Mega-Regs). But big!

@alanbeattie @dikenson Didn’t appreciate this is a Pauline moment for Economist. Still, Members must take blame, not WTO. (They deserve it).

@dikenson Who wants to do ‘more modest’? ‘Ambitious’ motivates the political economy. Modest is what your mother said. Fewer and higher :)

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

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@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.

via YoruFukurou

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