Free Trade

Free traders are today's chauvinists. They tell us that Americans are by far the most intelligent, industrious and invincible people in the whole wide world, so we can compete with Third World poverty wages and prosper.

So what else is new? Snake oil always has greased the hands that sell it. Changing labels doesn't change hogwash.
