Rodrik’s progressive trade agenda


Economist Dani RodrikĀ offers some suggestions for what a progressive trade agenda might look like:

  1. Embrace globalization
  2. More and better social insurance (safety nets) and redistribution of gains from trade
  3. Better international rules to protect domestic values and norms
  4. Multilateral orientation
  5. Leave "policy space" for developing countries while establishing broad democracy and human rights principles within the trade regime
  6. Begin expanding international labor mobility, not just mobility of goods and capital
