"Emerging powers show ambivalence toward global institutions…like the UN and IMF…Traditional alliances will weaken…This is a story with no clear outcome…[and is] without precedent in modern history."

"I can’t think of a time when the US has been more isolated…And that can’t help when nations are trying to reach consensus in the WTO." - Mark Weisbrot of the Center for Economic and Policy Research
—Nusrat Choudhury, "The Economic Impact of Anti-Americanism" (working paper, Princeton University, 2005).
