One of the main controversies surrounding both transatlantic trade deals, TTIP between the USA and the European Union and CETA, between Canada and the European Union, is the ISDS clause.
Why has no one tried to seal the deal but without the ISDS?

How feasible would it be to revive transatlantic trade deals without the special court systems (ISDS)
Intercontinental trade has gone on for centuries without special international court systems, so why would one be absolutely required nowadays? What is supposed to be so different this time? I haven't seen a convincing answer yet.
Note that the British East-Indian Company and the Dutch VOC held a much larger share of intercontinental trade in their time than any company nowadays, and they didn't need this kind of protection.
So yes, it would be very feasible to have transatlantic trade deals without special court systems. Companies know how to operate in such circumstances, as they have done so for centuries.
