From that standpoint, yes, but allow me to tell you that the use of the word "balance" is a problem. Balance is a virtue; it is the image of justice. The problem is that that image leads to a zero sum game. In this situation, if either of the two parties wins, the other loses. That logic leads to a dead end. In my view, it would be important not to put the emphasis on that term and not to bandy it about. I'm afraid it will lock us in a world that we'll be unable to escape and that it will prevent us from negotiating acceptable conditions.
