Times of India: Globalization’s Revenge

Global leaders are uncertain about their relationship with the United States. Policies, whether promoting America first in trade or separating children from parents seeking asylum, have long-term consequences for other countries. Questions emerge about the meeting between the US president and North Korea’s leader, followed by Donald Trump’s assurances that the nuclear weapons problem had been solved without verification. Another complication: the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential implication. US voters head to the polls in four months to decide on all members of the US House of Representatives and one-third of the Senate seats. Support for Trump among Republican supporters remains strong: “Candidate Trump secured his party’s nomination and ultimately the presidency by capitalising on the anger and disillusionment of voters who felt marginalised by globalisation, especially the demographic and cultural challenges brought on by rising non-white migration and job losses wrought by global trade and automation,” writes Nayan Chanda, founding editor of YaleGlobal Online in his column for the Times of India. Other countries respond with tariffs that target Trump’s Republican supporters, and Chanda concludes that “globalisation can always bite back.” – YaleGlobal
