-- How Will You Use This Story? --


(OPEN):
ARE THE WORLD'S VIEWS ON TRADE CHANGING?  WITH THE "BREXIT"-VOTE IN BRITAIN, AND GROWING FREE-TRADE SKEPTICISM DOMESTICALLY, DON PHILLIPS--A FORMER U-S TRADE-OFFICIAL--THINKS SO...

(PHILLIPS):
"
THERE'S A LOT OF UNCERTAINTY IN THE TRADE-WORLD, RIGHT NOW:  CLEARLY, A LOT OF TRADITIONAL ASSUMPTIONS ARE BEING CHALLENGED.  AND, THE U-S--WHICH HAS TYPICALLY BEEN A CHAMPION OF TRADE-LIBERALIZATION AND GLOBALIZATION--HAS TAKEN A MUCH-MORE-SKEPTICAL VIEW, ABOUT THE BENEFITS OF TRADE.  PERSONALLY, I DOUBT THERE WILL BE A FUNDAMENTAL CHANGE, IN THE LONG-TERM TRAJECTORY OF THE WORLD-ECONOMY--AND THE TRADE-RELATIONSHIPS, OR TRADE-RULES, BETWEEN COUNTRIES.  BUT, I THINK THERE IS A CHANCE THAT--WITH SOME OF THIS ACRIMONIOUS RHETORIC [THAT] WE'VE HEARD--THAT THERE COULD BE A SERIOUS CONFRONTATION WITH SOME OF OUR TRADING-PARTNERS--WHICH COULD RESULT IN SOME TRADE-WARS OR -RETALIATION.  BUT, THAT REMAINS TO BE SEEN."
