Abstract/Summary The policy document 'Advancing the National Interest' reveals much about the Howard government's understanding of contemporary economic and geopolitical realities. The author questions the government's pursuit of a free trade agreement with the United States which puts our economic relationship on a parallel footing to our political relationship. If the government is serious about pursuing a national interest it equates with 'the security and prosperity of Australia and Australians' then it would do well to remember that a more economically integrated, mutually beneficial international trade regime is only possible on a multilateral basis that constrains the behaviour of all states.
