Total :eyeroll: post

The latest World Trade Organization rejection of proposed European Union banana tariffs was greeted with dismay Friday by Caribbean nations fearful that they will be unable to compete with Latin American nations.

::eye rolling furiously::

What? Somehow, somewhere, the banana-growers of the region really expected the outcome to be something different? Why, in this day and age, are we still Shocked! Horrified! at these WTO rulings? Could it be because Shock! Horror! we still haven’t managed to diversify our crops or our export markets?

Note to banana farmers of the region: The rest of us have accepted that the extra-regional banana trade is dead. Time for you guys to do the same.
