Abstract:
The Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) ran into rough weather in Miami last November. The patchwork deal to let countries go in different directions on several issues, as each FTAA member might fancy its interests to lie in, was little more than a face-saving formula. But if one looks closely at the face, it is evident that USTR Zoellick’s love affair with the strategy of going bilateral and regional, both as desirable in itself (when many see these proliferating deals as a pox on the world trading system) and as a strategic means to spur multilateralism (when in fact many regard it as harming it), had floundered.
