Chirac and trade

It is a weakness, I know, but I just cannot resist quoting from today’s editorial in the Wall Street Journal:

“The most important thing to know about the global trade talks that ended Sunday in Hong Kong is that French President Jacques Chirac thinks they were a success. That means they were a bust for everyone else, especially the world's poor.”

“Trading blows,” Wall Street Journal, 19 Dec 05
