Stuck on a Spoke: Proliferating Bilateral Trade Deals are a Dangerous Game for Canada
Canada’s Minister of International Trade, David Emerson, heralded a free trade agreement with the European Free Trade Association in June by saying “Canada is back in the game.” In July, the government announced talks on free trade with Colombia, Peru and CARICOM (the Caribbean Community). While the new agreement is an overdue triumph over special interests, and western-hemisphere liberalization offers economic and political benefits, a broader view of trade policy shows that Canada has fallen behind — and is perhaps even playing in the wrong arena.
