Robert Zoellick Takes On Two New Jobs

    He seems to be doing OK for himself employment-wise. Do we really need more Goldman Sachs thinking in Washington?

    If the Federal Gov’t — no matter what administration — imposes a moratorium on hiring former Goldman Sachs employees, that would help provide our capital with some desperately needed new ways of looking at things, and would help the rest of the country have more of a say in how we’re governed.

    I have a lot of respect for Zoellick, but his work as a trade representative was damaging. The terms by which China acceded to the WTO were disastrous, certainly first for the free traders of the world and second for China itself, though the latter is only beginning to manifest itself now.
    I can’t claim to have knowledge of how those negotiations unfolded, but I can say that looking at the terms now, it boggles the mind that they ever could have been thought a good idea.
