The world got very, very complex when it came to international trade negotiations.
In a nutshell, they were complicated enough that we didn’t know what to do with them, let alone how to do it.
We’ve come a long way since then, and with the rise of the internet and the emergence of new technologies, trade is less of a problem for business.
