Developed countries are still using the WTO to squeeze small farmers in the developing world--and developing world governments are going along with the charade.
FPIF asked Anuradha Mittal of the Oakland Institute and Gawain Kripke of Oxfam whether international trade is good for agriculture or not. Mittal sees free trade as hazardous to farmers and farming. Kripke sees a role for trade in sustainable development. While they agree on many points, here they also take issue with each other's positions.
