As the World Bank, the IMF and the WTO are aiming to develop a common approach to world economic policies called the 'coherence agenda', The Yes Men have an agenda of their own. The Yes Men gain worldwide notoriety for impersonating the World Trade Organization on TV and at business conferences around the world, amazingly without being discovered. The bizarre story begins with activists Andy and Mike setting up a website that mimics the WTO, which is mistaken for the real thing - they soon find themselves invited to important functions as WTO representatives. Delighted to speak as the organisation they oppose, Andy and Mike don cheap suits and set out to see how far they can push it - with darkly comic satires featuring the worst aspects of global free trade.
