ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the implication of the failure of the World Trade Organization (WTO) negotiations. The author asserts that India and China's actions of putting an end to the negotiations would mean that major powers will need to take charge of domestic supplies and prices. He explains that in theory, the negotiations were designed to free up international trade over a wide range of industries and services. But in reality, agriculture will be suffer more when such negotiations have succeeded.
