.@GtownCarola recently hosted an event as part of its Fall Series, “The Future of Trade.” Speakers discussed what the future may hold for the international trade regime as the backlash against the global liberal consensus of the last 3 decades unfolds:
“[The #USMCA] is a fundamental change in the way we look at #trade agreements, and I think that it’s going to be with us for a while whether Trump wins or doesn't win” - @AmbJamesRJones: bit.ly/2GQcQ2M
“One big question mark will be if [the phase 1 US-China 2020 procurement] target is not met, what that will mean in terms of whether or not the trade war will escalate.” - Mark Wu @Harvard_Law: bit.ly/2Fa9ZkV
“There is a caricature of some fight between ‘it’s the status quo’ or ‘it’s Trump’s nationalism,’ or ‘it’s autarky,’ and those are not our only three choices.” @WallachLori on the situation at the #WTO, how we got there, and what may happen in the future: bit.ly/3d8YZRm
“We are at a moment for creative rethinking. The normal science of trade law built around the grow the pie narrative is breaking down... what we really need now is a broader reappraisal.” - @harlangcohen: bit.ly/2GD7fx7
“[A new stable alternative narrative on trade] wouldn't question trade's power to help economies grow but it would tie choices about the pace and scope of liberalization to domestic policy priorities.” - @harlangcohen: bit.ly/3iFz1X1

@NMSecofState on USPS: “I personally am feeling very confident in the ability of our United States Postal Service to get the job done.” bit.ly/3jCMcZR
On public scrutiny: “You don’t have to go very far back in history to see how a secretary of state was made very infamous, or famous.” “We’ve all been working in our states to avoid that type of situation.” @Louisiana_sos bit.ly/33AMCKX

Today, #GeorgetownLaw Professor Paul Butler is testifying at @HouseJudiciary's hearing on the #JusticeinPolicingAct.

@LawProfButler is a former prosecutor, #RacialJustice scholar and author of "Chokehold: Policing Black Men."

Thread on his powerful opening statement (1/10):
"There has never, not for one minute in American history, been peace between black people and the police," @LawProfButler tells @HouseJudiciary. (2/10)
"The main problem is not bad apple cops. Officers have difficult jobs & many serve with honor and valor. Still almost every objective investigation of a police department finds that police as policy treat African Americans with contempt,” @LawProfButler to @HouseJudiciary.(3/10)
