    The American Global Trading System which the WTO now represents, is the single most important reason for the advancement of mankind, and the raising of billions of people out of abject poverty. A simple review of those countries which engage in the most world trade, shows that the more you trade the faster you advance. Had the US not worked as hard as it has to get nations to buy into world trade, most of the human race, would still be living in squalor.

      Come now! I’m all in favor of global trade, but not only does most of the world’s population still live in poverty, but the USA was not the world’s first global trading nation. Furthermore, while the US probably engages in more world trade than any other country, it has not advanced noticeably in recent years.
