Trade vs Aid

The NZ Herald has a nice line in the debate about helping the third world:

It has been estimated that barriers to trade in developed economies cost poor nations more than $100 billion a year, about twice what rich countries give in aid.

I’m not optimistic of progress though with a protectionist President and Congress in the United States, and the loss of Mandelson as Trade Commissioner for the EU.
