About this book

This book explores the real record and legacy of the World Trade Organization. In its eight years of being the world's highest authority on global trade, the WTO has extended its reach into the democratic processes of local communities, in determining what local laws - from worker protections to anti-child labor statutes - interfere with international commerce. Through a battery of new agreements and legal challenges--whose outcomes are determined in secret courts, presided over by judges partial to the industries that bring the suits--the group furthers its one purpose: spreading the corporate economic globalization trade agenda, over concerns of democratic and accountable government.
