I wonder what made this so… uh… ap-pealing this morning.
What I wrote wrote back in December 2009 was more about trade agreements and and agriculture anyway:
Bananas may not be such a big deal, but peel back the assumptions — that the rich countries get to play by a different set of rules than the rest of the planet — and the whole “free” part of “free trade” is called into question. Agricultural subsidies and tariffs, more than anything else, have called the whole assumptions of the World Trade Organization into question. International trade agreements broke down in 2003 (in Cancún) over the agricultural subsides (the banana controversy being the symbolic issue) and have stalled since.
Probably somebody just slipped up. And I got bunches of hits.
