It Is Done

"Uruguayan Candidate Yields to Lamy on WTO"

The traditional pro-trade, i.e. business, press in the States has ignored this story at their peril. I must say, with a certain hint of chagrin, so too have the "right-wing" - i.e., essentially, in this day and age, not anti-American and typically pro-market - sectors of the sphere. (A collegial shout-out, nonetheless, to Eric at No Pasarán and the fine folks at Hispalibertas, who prove on a daily basis that in Spanish at least the word "liberalism" has not yet lost its sense. Addendum: And to Chrenkoff! [My bad for not passing on the link earlier.])
