Doha closes, another opens - op-ed by Mark Thirlwell

What do the latest stalemate in world trade negotiations and a dead parrot have in common? In this opinion piece Mark Thirlwell writes that the increasingly desperate attempts to claim that there remains at least some life in the Doha Round are becoming eerily reminiscent of a Monty Python sketch. Unfortunately, the current crisis in world trade is no laughing matter. The Australian, 27 July 2006, p. 10
