[OP-ED]: Amid Trump’s chaos, a post-American world emerges

 08/01/2017 - 09:10
In 2008, I wrote a book about the emerging “Post-American World,” which was, I noted at the start, not about the decline of America but rather the rise of the rest.

El gobierno de Trump está decidido a renegociar el Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte (TLCAN)—que creó un mercado único desde la frontera sur de México hasta el Yukon—pero el principal atractivo político de esta política yace en un mito popular: que un comercio “justo” requiere que Estados Unidos tenga un exceso comercial o un equilibrio comercial tanto con México como con Canadá.
