Top news story. The main news this week was a decision by a WTO panel that tariffs on Chinese goods imposed by the US under Donald Trump contradicted a number of articles of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade. Of course, the President’s subsequent abrupt reaction did not take long, but he has not yet spoken of US withdrawal from the WTO. The WTO is one of the main Bretton Woods institutions mandated by the Bretton Woods Conference in 1944. The WTO was long-standing and the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, GATT, was the first phase. Donald Trump, whose economic model implies abandoning global markets, has made the WTO one of its priority targets, and a decision in favor of China could significantly accelerate the process of destroying this systemic institution.
