Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Still and all, what have the free-traders of the Adam Smith Institute got against "marketing intitiatives"? What are they complaining about?

Oh, that everything "distorts" markets... Except for the wealthy and powerful dominating trade on their own terms?

I can't rid myself of the impression that, if producers were getting, not 10%, but just 1 or 2% more for their products through an "undistorted" market system, we'd be hearing a lot about how global free trade with added trickle-down is "lifting millions from poverty".
