Like the physics behind magnets, the inner workings of trade negotiations remain a mystery to many, even those outside the Juggalo community. Where trade negotiations are different is there are actually comparatively few accessible explainers on how they work in practice, what goes on and how negotiators approach them.
Welcome to this new series on how a trade negotiation works.
Some WTO Members have objected to the UK's draft version of its tariff commitments, but this doesn't mean the UK can't trade, doesn't mean the UK isn't a WTO Member, and likely won't impact your life. It could make negotiating FTAs a little bit more difficult, but not fatally so. It also has nothing to do with the 'WTO Option'.
