Hi Ben,

I think there is a danger in leaving this issue to academic economists: they spread the 'no use' message, which everyone gets, but then descend in to technical arguments about data and analytical tools which no-one else gets.

I tried to reply to Rose a couple of years ago here (http://www.inquit.com/24/does-wto-membership-increase-trade). But my impression is that this story (http://www.inquit.com/164/yes-virginia-the-wto-matters-a-great-deal) is a more telling -- and almost plausible -- response.
