Robert Lighthizer Blew Up 60 Years of Trade Policy. Nobody Knows What Happens Next. — Lydia DePillis

Summary:
Robert Lighthizer and the Trump administration (for whom Steve Bannon was the initial spokesman before he was forced out) pitted themselves against neoliberal globalization on one hand, and the capitalist establishment on the other. Big chunk to bite off, to be sure. They made some inroads, but none that are permanent, lasting beyond a change of administrations. If DJT wins the election, they might have more success. If not, it's likely back to business as usual.ProPublicaRobert Lighthizer Blew Up 60 Years of Trade Policy. Nobody Knows What Happens Next.Lydia DePillis
