ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the consideration of the Doha Round of the World Trade Organization (WTO) negotiations as a top priority of the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush. The President has called on the Congress to approve free trade agreements with Colombia, Panama and South Korea, and reauthorize and reform the Trade Adjustment Assistance program. This is to make trade as a major theme of his 2008 State of the Union address. However, this may result to job cuts for some Americans.
