NYT Article on Stalled Trade Agenda/GSP

The front page of the New York Times’ Business Section has an article today on the stalled trade agenda.  It notes that GSP has expired “for parochial reasons, not partisan ones,” and reminds us once again that the entire program is being held up for just one company.  It goes on to say that:

Mr. Kazazian [the owner of the company] says his product — sleeping bags — should not be included in the program, but a quasi-judicial agency, the United States International Trade Commission, has disagreed. Most sleeping bags in the United States are imported from China, and indeed, Mr. Kazazian controls a sleeping-bag plant there.

This piece follows a a flurry of articles on GSP expiration (several weeks back) in the NYT, Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, and Time.
