World Trade Organization lets Mexico slap trade sanctions on U.S. in tuna dispute



WTO lets Mexico slap trade sanctions on U.S. in tuna dispute. Mexico can impose annual trade sanctions worth $163.23 million against the United States after winning a dispute over trade in tuna fish, a World Trade Organization arbitrator ruled on Tuesday. Mexico’s economy ministry said it planned immediate action to initiate the trade sanctions. However, the ruling could be overturned later this year if a subsequent WTO decision finds the United States has stopped discriminating against tuna caught by its southern neighbor.

I’ve worked in foreign aid for 50 years—Trump is right to end it, even if his reasons are wrong



I’ve worked in foreign aid for 50 years—Trump is right to end it, even if his reasons are wrong. I’ve worked in foreign aid for over fifty years, in over 60 developing countries in Africa, Latin America, and Asia. In earlier years I would have scoffed at Jason Sadler’s naivété and called him a dumb do-gooder. My professional colleagues in foreign aid and I know better. At venerable NGOs like Save the Children, World Vision, CARE; at government aid agencies like USAID; at prestigious multilateral organizations like the World Bank; at big foundations like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Clinton Foundation; we believe we know what works to better people’s lives—we do our homework, we are analytical, thoughtful, and reflective. We are not dumb do-gooders.

Good News for Caribbean Integration, or Not



Good News for Caribbean Integration, or Not. It is natural that the two most populous CARICOM states, Haiti and Jamaica, would have the largest number of their nationals travelling throughout the region.  Does that mean nationals of Haiti and Jamaica by their sheer numbers are likely to face greatest scrutiny and barriers to regional travel? With regard to Jamaican nationals, there have been vexing issues related to the treatment meted out to them by the immigration services of Barbados and Trinidad & Tobago.

USAID Partners to Invest in Africa’s Entrepreneurs



USAID Partners to Invest in Africa’s Entrepreneurs. Sustainable entrepreneurship is a critical component of inclusive development. Entrepreneurs create jobs, drive local economic growth and strengthen supply chains. In Africa, small and growing businesses are responsible for nearly 80% of formal employment. But this is also the “missing middle” of the African economy—small businesses that typically employ between five and 250 people—that still struggles to access the finance it needs grow. Increased private investment is one key to solving this problem. While impact investing remains nascent in Africa, more investors are beginning to see the potential for achieving both social and financial returns. A 2015 survey by JP Morgan reported that impact investors intended to increase their investments in sub-Saharan Africa more than any other geographic region
