Resurgent US Nationalism and Globalization

Michael Clarke.

This paper identifies and analyses what are appearing to be contradictions in US foreign policy. On the one hand the US is committed to, and has been since the foundation of the state, global free trade, multilateral agreements on investment, and the whole panoply of the liberalization agenda. Now however, the US is identifying issues on which it is unwilling to support the emerging world consensus and is, through economic muscle, forcing the rest of the industrialized and industrializing world to accept its policies. These issues include such topics as human rights, the environment and free movement of labor.
