    Plummet of The Americas
    These countries cannot compete in basic manufacturing with East Asia, or in high technology with the United States and Europe.

    Nov. 7, 2005 issue - As leaders of Latin America and the Caribbean gather this week for the fourth Summit of the Americas, big-bang reform is probably the last thing on their minds. Mexico's Vicente Fox is a lame duck. Argentina's Nestor Kirchner is turning to economic nationalism and Venezuela's Hugo Chavez to destructive populism. Brazil's Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva is enveloped in scandal. Political dramas in Ecuador, Bolivia and Peru are turning into farces. Too bad, because these countries are in serious trouble.

    Instead of focusing on the urgent need for dramatic social and economic reform, leaders at the summit likely will be thinking about the 19 major elections taking place in the next 18 months.

    FTAs are the US Agenda pushing these WTO governed business deals down the throats of these other nations and ours.

    Many of the other nations are catching on, as are we, and there is a great deal of opposition.

    Since almost no Americans want it either, why don't WE stop the the Evil FTAs and set these people free from the clutches and glutches of the Wackident and his Globbies?
