There are now only ten days to go before the start of the World Trade Organisation’s summit in Cancun. So far there is no sign of a breakthrough that could lead to the abolition, or even serious reduction, of agricultural subsidies even though their elimination would boost economic development in the Third World while saving the West hundreds of billions of dollars.
There has also been remarkably little news from Cancun itself. There are reports on the web that up to 50,000 demonstrators (peaceful, I hope) will descend on the town but will be kept 9km from where the negotiations are being held. (What was that about the information revolution bringing the death of distance . . .?)
If there is anyone out there in Cancun reading this site, let us know what is happening.
