The Politics of Trade, 2004


Ryan Lizza notes that Democratic presidential candidates are less and less inclined even to pay lip service to free trade. . . . and I have an article at TechCentralStation on the choice that Bush and the Democrats offer us: “It is, alas, a choice between different orders of badness. On one side, we have a president who has imposed tariffs on imports of steel, lumber, and Chinese lingerie. On the other, an opposition that largely agrees with these tariffs and objects only to the president’s promises to free trade in the future.”
