The Greens aren’t the only ones who can’t get their treaties in shape; the World Trade Organization also illustrates the crisis of globalism in the twenty-teens.The news from the WTO is bad and getting worse. The great and the good wring their hands as momentum continues to leak from the round. and there’s a significant chance that the round will be declared dead by year’s end. The WTO guys at least got one treaty before bogging down, but the chance of a new global trade treaty continues to drop.Environment, trade, finance, terror, migration, proliferation, drugs: the world has a lot of problems that can really only be tackled at a global level. Unfortunately, we lack the institutions, leadership and consensus that would make effective global action possible.Result: we are going to be living in an imperfect world with urgent, unsolved problems on every side far into the foreseeable future.Get used to it.
