The WSJ has a strange article on Roberto Azevedo's selection as DG. It starts:
A depressing rule of international institutions is that whatever their founding intentions they inevitably evolve to serve themselves or their worst members more than their original cause. The latest example is the World Trade Organization, which began as a rule-making body to promote free trade and has drifted toward protectionism when it isn't useless.
The WTO has drifted towards protectionism? That seems like it was written by someone who is unfamiliar with the WTO.
