    “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.”

    How about if we restrict the WTO to liberal democracies that observe the rule of law? That way we could leverage our collective economic might to bring about reform in places like China . . . and Mexico. In effect, levy a tax on them until they shape up. Maybe even a heavy tax.
