    In the USA the income tax was originally meant to fund a war. They refused to put a cap of 10% on it because they were afraid the tax would immediately go to 10%. What a joke. Nowdays it is between 33% and 50%, less for real poverty income levels.

    Politicians found they liked having all that extra money to sling around. Still do.

    I am suggestion that both of your questions could easily have been answered by using a dictionary, Wikipedia,or Google. It turns out that the Maldivian State Trading Organization was the very first hit when I searched on STO's.

    Did you check the link? STO (used in the Wikipedia link) = State Trading Organization, which is in the Maldives, aka Paradise. It should be explained in Maldivian history what that organization does. According to Wikipedia, it was formed to bring commerce to the islands and improve the faltering local economy.

    The purpose of the WTO is to ensure that global trade commences smoothly, freely and predictably. The WTO creates and embodies the legal ground rules for global trade among member nations and thus offers a system for international commerce. The WTO aims to create economic peace and stability in the world through a multilateral system based on consenting member states (currently there are slightly more than 140 members) that have ratified the rules of the WTO in their individual countries as well. This means that WTO rules become a part of a country's domestic legal system. The rules, therefore, apply to local companies and nationals in the conduct of business in the international arena. If a company decides to invest in a foreign country, by, for example, setting up an office in that country, the rules of the WTO (and hence, a country's local laws) will govern how that can be done. Theoretically, if a country is a member to the WTO, its local laws cannot contradict WTO rules and regulations, which currently govern approximately 97% of all world trade.

    The site has lots of ads, so....I guess they want you to buy something they have traded for? :)

    Yep. Remember, theory ain't always what is practiced. China has been a member since 2001.
