There are two key organizations
involved with the 'partnership' for development.
World Trade Organization (WTO)
Trade Organization (WTO) is the only global
international organization dealing with the rules
of trade between nations. At its heart art
the WTO agreements negotiated and signed by the
bulk of the world's trading nations and ratified
in their parliaments. The goal is to help
producers of goods and services, exporters, and
importers conduct their business."
United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD)
Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD)
celebrates its fortieth anniversary this year.
During the four decades, the organization has been
the focal point within the United Nations for the
integrated treatment of the trade and development
and related issues in the area of investment,
finance, technology, enterprise development and
1964, UNCTAD promotes the development-friendly
integration of developing countries into the world
economy. UNCTAD has progressively evolved
into an authoritative knowledge-based institution
whose work aims to help shape current policy
debates and thinking on development, with a
particular focus on ensuring that domestic
policies and international action are mutually
supportive in bringing about sustainable
The WTO and the UNCTAD work hand
in hand for primarily for the benefit of the multinational
corporations. The WTO trading rules are written to
give preferences to third world countries because it is
profitable for the multinational corporations to produce in
the third world and then to import into the developed world.
The UNCTAD provides the propaganda and 'humanitarian' cover
of 'helping the poor nations to develop'.

trading scheme is progressive. Each round of trade
talks incrementally opens up the economies of the developed
countries to be drained and exploited by the third world
countries - for the profit of the multinationals. Laws
within the member countries are then changed to 'harmonize'
with the trading rules established by the trade talks.
This scheme defeats the democratic processes of
representative government and changes it to a
fascist-communist partnership for central economic planning.
The concept is deceptively sold
as 'Free Trade' when in reality it is centrally planned
trade It is causing global redistribution of income
from workers in the developed world to workers in the third
world with the multinational corporations and their wealthy
shareholders pocketing the difference. Succinctly
stated, 'free trade' takes from those who have little to
give to those who have nothing... and the wealthy laugh all
the way to the bank.
This statement by Carly Fiorina
says it all:
"There is no job that is America's God-given
right anymore. We have to compete for jobs." Carly
Fiorina, CEO of Hewlett-Packard.
What she is saying is that if Americans want jobs, they
will have to accept the same pay as the Chinese for a
manufacturing job and the same pay as an Indian for a
professional job. (Note: this is why our public
schools are being 'redesigned' to be vocational schools for
the most part, those are the jobs that can't be exported.)
