Trade First. Political Freedoms to Come?

It's an admittedly self-serving policy that I endorse (Cato in Far Eastern Economic Review). It does make sense though: trade spreads ideas and create wealth, which in turn breeds a yearning for freedom. On the other hand, it does sometimes mean sacrificing a minority under generally oppressive governments though clearly it's not a policy that can always works.
