The U.S. government's response to the crisis in China has been, by all accounts, measured and resonable, supportive of democratic aspirations. Yet its response to the so-called "trade problem" with the vibrant democracy of India has been only slightly short of hysterical. Instead of supporting the attempts being made by India, which despite an autarkic past has liberalized imports, opened up hitherto unreachable markets and indulged market economics to an unprecedented extent, the Administration has sought to isolate these trends by threatening trade retaliation for those things that have not yet been done.

"How can people like me, who have listened to you ad nauseam, actually participate?" said Marrone, owner of the Valley Village educational software firm Themes & Schemes.

Dear Karen: We supply Cal State University campuses with money-saving lighting, but we can't get new orders with the budget cuts. Don't they have a mandate to buy from certified small businesses? Answer: California is in uncharted territory regarding state expenditures. In this climate, said Rohit Shukla, chief executive of Larta Institute, "mandates -- especially on set-asides for small business -- are easily forgotten, if not circumvented. You can be sure that every vendor, small or not, is being squeezed."
