Bruce Stokes comments on Sandra Polaski's new report on the WTO Doha Round, Winners and Losers, in The National Journal:
American cattlemen, poultry producers, and moviemakers can expect to be winners in the current Doha Round of multilateral trade negotiations, according to a new computer model that measures the impact of a likely outcome of the talks. The model will be released March 15 in Washington by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. But the American successes will, in part, be offset by the losses that U.S. soybean growers and automakers will incur. In the end, the round will do nothing to reduce the mushrooming U.S. trade deficit.
