Do free trade ourselves, without WTO

Q: Should be a part of the WTO? A: I believe we should, but I have no illusions about it. Iíve compared to the WTO to a wooly mammoth without the charm. The Uruguay Round took 13 years. This roundís going to take probably 25 or 30 years. I think we should take action on our own - for example, doing a North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement with Ireland and Britain. Bring in on the Pacific side Australia, New Zealand & other nations. Do it ourselves. We canít wait for the WTO. Itís useless.

Invite Britain & Ireland to join US free trade

Forbes announces at a speech in London, ďI will invite the people of Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland to join the United States in a North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement.Ē Such a free trade union would mean lower taxes and higher wages, faster growth, more freedom for farmers, and less government, he said.
