I agree with you and do hope the current trade wars will be over soon. At the same time, however, I am afraid that issues more than trade are involved here. Perhaps we should rethink global governance in general, in a way which can strengthen the competence of multilateral organizations. To achieve this goal, “public” awareness must be raised to a lot higher level than now, possibly via education and social marketing. Without some kind of change at a “cultural” dimension, this kind of big change would not happen.
