    In this week's Brainstorm, we talk about President Donald Trump's decision to surge, once more, in Afghanistan. Will it work, what does it say about the president's foreign policy, and what does it mean for Europe? We also debate globalisation within Europe, looking at whether the EU has tamed market pressures or unleashed them.
