The Great Unwind

At World Politics Review, Judah Grunstein echoes concerns about the unraveling of NATO and the EU. He asks:
What's interesting is the way in which the NATO and EU expansion ... mirrors the economic expansion of the corresponding period, a sort of geopolitical equivalent of the bubble economy. That raises the question of whether the faultlines that are becoming increasingly apparent in the two structures represent a "market correction."

Retrenchment to core missions is what he is proposing.

Why does NATO even exist?

What is its core mission when its adversary - the Warsaw Pact & USSR are gone?
Very interesting observation by Grunstein!

Can the Washington Consensus then stop or recede?...
