This morning on NPR I heard a "debate" on GATT between Ralph Nader and a
gov't mouthpiece of some sort. This ended up being not so much a debate
as a shouting match. Ralph Nader claims that the WTO can rule against
US law when it comes to regulations on labor and the environment. The
mouthpiece claims that this is not true. I have heard both of these
"arguments" before, and do not know who to believe. I do not
particularly want to wade through the text of the agreement.
One statement I've heard is that things like pesticide regulations
cannot be ruled against as long as they apply to every country equally.
Is this true?
Can someone in the know (like from IATP?) comment on the potential
effects of the WTO on US pesticide regulations in particular?
Thanks in advance!
