Abstract

The paper proposes a new approach for making global contracts, mainly based on the Coase-theorem. In particular, it is argued that combining several, normally unrelated issues to a bargaining bundle could facilitate Pareto-efficient contracts that benefit all, even including future generations. For this ends, a new institution called Global Protection Agency (GPO) is suggested that should be organized quite similar to the WTO, however with a much larger scope of competences.A formal model is used to demonstrate how this could work.
