EU Actions harm Small Third World Businesses

The Vietnamese government is claiming that the latest EU dumping duties on shoes will cause small businesses to close. Bear in mind if you will, that the GDP per head in Vietnam is $630 . On the other side of the equation, this action will raise the price of shoes across Europe, forcing consumers to pay more. Not that it will effect wearers of Prada very much. The poor of Europe however, thats another thing. Great isn't it this EU thing. Screw the poor abroad and the poor at home.
