Free Trade, from the bottom?

I was commenting yesterday that I felt like I hadn't written anything in a long time--because I hadn't.  So I sat down and plunked on the keyboard for about 2 hours instead of going to bed at a reasonable hour.  It may just be coincidence, but all sorts of things are catching my eye today. 

Here's a piece in the Christian Science Monitor, by a Chilean presidential candidate. 
It's a good assessment of the potential benefits to small (developing) countries, should an equitable version of free trade be enacted on a broad scope. 
Equally amazing to me is that a U.S. publication is publishing the thoughts and ideas of a political CANDIDATE from the developing world--amazing the voices that are heard some days.
