THAT MAY HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL NEXT CONGRESS:

NZ's man in Washington says trade deal is priority (New Zealand Herald, 1/21/10)

Mike Moore, the man who once headed the World Trade Organisation, will now lead the charge on getting a trade agreement with the United States as New Zealand's ambassador in Washington.

Former Labour prime minister Mr Moore said making progress on the US joining the Trans Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership (TPP) would be a priority in his agenda.

"I think there is a job to be done here for New Zealand and I'd like to do it, and I'd do it with everything I've got, 24/7. Our interests are at stake," he said.


The Democrats would rather indulge their own protectionist impulses than grow the economy.
