[OP-ED]: Trump’s radical doctrine of retreat

 06/06/2017 - 16:54
Las consecuencias de la postura y de las acciones de Trump son difíciles de prever. Podrían resultar en el lento deterioro del orden internacional liberal. Podrían significar el auge de un orden nuevo y no tan liberal, promovido por China e India, ambos países mercantilistas y nacionalistas. EFE
English

We now have a Trump Doctrine, and it is, in its conception at least, the most radical departure from a bipartisan American foreign policy since 1945. In an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal, National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn and national security adviser H.R. McMaster explain that President Trump has “a clear-eyed outlook that the world is not a ‘global community’ but an arena where nations, nongovernmental actors and businesses engage and compete for advantage.”

The consequences of Trump’s stance and his actions are difficult to foresee. They might result in the slow erosion of the liberal international order. They might mean the rise of a new, not-so-liberal order, championed by China and India, both of them mercantilist and nationalist countries. EFE
