China & other dictatorships have no real free trade

I agree, there have to be some agreements [like the WTO] dealing with tariff barriers and other issues that really interfere with authentic comparative advantage. And by that, I donít mean dictatorially repressed costs such as in China or Indonesia, where global corporations go in the name of free trade, but thereís no free trade because the workers canít organize and thereís no market-determined cost. Itís all dictatorial, repressed costs. This needs to be made more clear.
