    We shall see. He is an extreme zealot for Brazil, so remaining nuetral may be a an RG politician not taking a kickback. This is a man that tried to get the WTO to investigate the US and China's monetary policy. However....he was selected from a majority of 159 nations......

    Realistically Chris, the head of WTO is a political position.......ass kissing. A monkey can do they job....which makes sense why they went to the jungles to fill it.
