The Question of the Q's: What Cue Should Quebec Send to Qatar?

May 2001
What I will try to cover in this memo is first a brief summary of what I call the regional domino policy of the U.S. to provide the background to the origins of the FTAA. I will then review the main features of the transformed political economy of the global trading system in the WTO, including the wide North-South divide and the rise to prominence of new transnational players, the NGO's, and their emerging global and regional strategies. The final portion will explore some policy options for positive regional-multilateral linkages - a new domino policy.
