    The assumption by the author of this article that WTO trade agreements are somehow beneficial to the United States but there is no objective study indicating that this is so. In fact, the United States has not benefited from the WTO and the evidence is that the United States is better off signing bilateral or regional agreements.

    Global free trade is a good idea

    Not without compensation for the losers out of the gains of the winners: http://www.jstor.org/discover/10.2307/40721553?uid=5221584&uid=2129&uid=2&uid=70&uid=3&uid=60&sid=21102646695187

    We overlook the principle of compensation at our peril. It is an integral part of trade theory.
