The Grand Geo-economic Coalition

August 15, 2013

The US is currently negotiating two massive free trade agreements – the Trans Pacific Partnership and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.   If completed, the rules and regulations of the two will eventually be rationalized with each other and with existing trade groups such as NAFTA.   As these rules will define trade with the most developed nations on the planet, it will result in a much-streamlined alternative to the often sclerotic World Trade Organization.   Some see this as simply an attempt to re-invigorate the Washington Consensus against rising alternatives, but in the logic of Long Cycle Theory, it is a natural consequence of the Coalitioning sequence, and is easily recognized as an attempt by the US to organize the maritime world against the rising continental power of China.
