In other words, economic integration, anchored in the nation-state, remained in favor globally, while democracy was made secondary to international market dynamics.Their approach consists in hindering globalization – while maintaining or even enhancing other aspects of the Washington Consensus, such as financial deregulation – and strengthening democracy through the nation-state.In his first appearance before the United Nations General Assembly, Trump delivered a 42-minute speech in which he used the words "sovereignty" or "sovereign" 21 times – an average of once every two minutes. In short, an increase in formal sovereignty could paradoxically result in a loss of effective sovereignty, which is the kind that really matters.To avoid perpetuating the deficiencies of the Washington Consensus, which were revealed with such clarity in 2016, this dialogue must occur within the framework of a common and democratic public sphere. If we cultivate this common public sphere, reducing the pre-eminence of the nation-state, we could advance step by step toward the least explored side of the triad described by Rodrik: global democracy.
