Doha Development Agenda Talks Suspended

The World Trade Organization (WTO) suspended the "Doha Development Agenda" talks today. So? Well, the WTO was trying to iron out agreements between developed and developing countries on global trade agreements. These talks were supposed to result in trade agreements for developing countries that would help their economies. Unfortunately after numerous delays today the talks were suspended. For the press release and comments on this suspension, check out today's report. For an explanation of what this means check out the Washington Post's "WTO talks collapse."
