  • “At a Minimum, Transatlantic Trade Negotiations Should Ditch Investor-State Provisions” by Daniel Ikenson at Cato (source)
  • “The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership: A Roadmap for Success” by Daniel Ikenson at Cato (source)
  • “A Compromise to Advance the Trade Agenda: Purge Negotiations of Investor-State Dispute Settlement” by Daniel Ikenson at Cato (source)
  • “The Obama Administration’s Trade Agenda Is Crumbling” by Daniel R. Pearson at Cato  (source)
