Abstract:
Where altruism is the driving force, the use of trade treaties and institutions to change standards elsewhere is not an efficient, and at times not even a feasible, way to do it. But, while the AFL-CIO was willing to discuss these matters earlier on intellectual grounds, it has decided now that it is better instead to capture the Congress via campaign contributions.
