    I wonder at the WTO take on the new protectionist tariffs imposed by the Mercosur. Venezuela is no stranger to facing down the G7. Might the entry of Venezuela signal a shift in the trading bloc’s position vis-a-vis international trade protocols that are often not in the interest of the South?

      Probably. Mercosur should pay more attention and strength the economical relations with the neighbour countries first. After all, the mention economic block has good prospects for growth.

    Cultural Exchange, ( Trade ? ) should have nothing to do with Politics ! History will prove that maintaining the Neutrality of the Trade Routes, is the Key, to a Civilizations ( As Political State ? ) Survival. Free Cultural Exchange is the best Diplomacy. If People can Trade, Acculturate, and Live, freely with one another; the politics of a given society in general, would prove irrelevant. If Hitler had allowed the Jews in Warsaw ( The Gypsy`s, The Catholics,etc.) to exist in the name of International Diversity, and Tolerance of Cultural Minorities, who would have questioned his free reign to do with the rest of Germany as he pleased ? The Americans, Who`s late History of Slavery and Exploitation of Native Cultures, are barely superseded by her present Socio-Economic Hegemony and Belligerence ? The Chinese ? Or even The Muslim Brotherhood ?

    Marxist, Capitalist, Gringo, Mulatto, Trade in Latin America should never be compromised by Partisan ( Sectarian ) Politics ! Trade must serve as a Neutral basis for Human Diversity, Diplomacy, and Tolerance; Or God help us All !

    Well, seems to me, governments always and everywhere distort trade to political ends; therefore, so do “trade blocs” that are after all. assemblies of governments. Add to that the suspension of Paraguay; a political gesture that simply decreases the trading scope of Mercosur.and suggests politics as usual with socialists in charge.

    No wonder that the world trading system is the mess it is…..
