An intersting question here is why no one, on the side of imperialism,
has until now arguede for a free international labour market, given the
fact that, from the various materials posted here on trade union
struggles in USA, most of the American capitalists would be all to
content with disposing of a cheap, non-unionized supply of Latin
American migrants, for instance. However, this is an issue that has not
been raised to far by Word Bank and IMF think-tanks...Why?
