Ernesto Zedillo, former president of Mexico and now director of the Yale Center for the Study of Globalization, talks with David Dollar about the importance of globalization for developing countries, the erosion of multilateralism, NAFTA and its proposed replacement—the USMCA—and other issues on trade. Dollar also asks Zedillo whether President Trump’s push to build a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico is damaging the bilateral relationship.
