Dear MEL Topic Readers,
Ex-World Bank head Robert Zoellick: ‘The world could look like 1900 again
Robert Zoellick is an American public official and a republican. He served various positions to support both GW and HW Bush administrations, as deputy secretary of state, US trade representative, and White House deputy chief of staff. He was also the president of the World Bank between 2007 and 2012 when the world suffered from the global financial and economic crisis. You can tell that he is a man of wisdom and a trusted republican.
He now warns that the world could look like it did before World War I when major powers tried to compete with each other. If the US, or the Trump administration, keeps its hostile stance in its foreign policy especially against China, and undermines the benefits of the international system, he fears that the world will not get over with the current crisis.
Enjoy learning what this wise man says about the current US foreign policies.
