Eric is very, very smart and knows lots of economics. Here is his first post; excerpt:
The busy international legal activity that occurred during the
post-Cold War era – the establishment of international courts, the
involvement of the Security Council, the advance of international trade
law – will slow down and perhaps even reenter the deep freeze into
which it was shunted during the Cold War. The irony is that liberal
internationalism could advance only as long as the United States was
the sole superpower and in the mood to advance it.
