Do people get the difference between "opening dialogue" and negotiating?
There was this guy that presumably walked the earth a little over 2 thousand years ago. And while he used the name Caesar he meant government when he basically instructed to give to Caesar what is Caesars. Now days folk want the US to deal with nations like we owe them. They really think our Gov. should open dialogues and give out love bonuses to other countries at our country's detriment.
These folks think that we are white privilege. And so should give away more than we get. Like him or not Trump does not share your guilt for succeeding. Get over it. I am not guilty that Mex is crippled.
I agree that the US govt. should not do favors at her own cost. But, maintaining and safeguarding her people's own safety and development, some cordial relations could be maintained with the rest of the world also. There comes the need for keeping the gates open.
Venkatachari, it is a proper balance. We have always used "back channels" to keep relationships real. Clinton used an interesting notion of not allowing gov. and private enterprise to fly together for trade negotiating. Business maintains relations.
Re Mexico crippled, Google on [Mexican farmers subsidies US].
Just as in the courts the opening statements by Prosecutor and Defense are meant to set the scene for their subsequent presentations, so also the "opening dialogue" is meant to set the stage for the negotiations that will follow.
Hit the opponent hard with the first punch to, if possible, shake the opponent's confidence that only good things will follow.
I recall former President Clinton bailing out Mexico in a peso crisis, and for what? Corruption continues, gangs hold parts of Mexico captive, and don't exactly make life in the USA serene.
Of course the USA has gangs, drug lords, and needy Mexicans, even after President Clinton's largess, and we now subsidize Mexico's problems by nurturing their escapees who are here.
Business wise we play a dance. Verbal agreements to meet. Memorandums of Understanding, Letters of intent. Clean money declarations, non-compete agreements, Proprietary and party non-competes, Confidentiality and non-disclosures. Maybe a contract.
In my long experience I have found that when you injure another for your own gain' you may Gain but you lose out in the long run. I am waiting in a mode of patience on the results of Trump's Presidency and if or how long it will last. When you cripple another you really cripple yourself.. Wait and See.
John in my second go around with cancer, they call it a "wait and see". It is there but damage is fully re-routable. I do not see a president causing anything but re-routable. I think I will choose to look for the good.
I too expect the Good. The U S of A has been a great influence for Good in our world. I am not speaking of the Dollars they have given to poorer countries. She has influenced many peoples for good in intangible ways. I expect that good influence wi
