Economists and other development professionals, some from WWF, formerly the environmental organization World Wildlife Fund, sample immediate and long-term impacts of trade deregulation on the poorest people around the world. Among the topics are forest and salmon markets in Chile, shrimp export from the Sundarbans of West Bengal, agricultural exports from Madagascar, sugarcane production in the Incomati River Basic in South Africa's Mpumalanga, and the expansion of shrimp farming in Vietnam.
