Anti-Free Trade Nonsense Refuted Again


Supply sider Paul Craig Roberts co-authored an amazingly ignorant editorial in the New York Times with New York Senator Charles Schumer calling for restrictions on free trade. According to Roberts and Schumer, free trade in shoes and wheat is okay, but not free trade in software and financial services. Columnist Michael Kinsley brilliantly and succinctly shows why their argument is nonsense. One would expect Schumer to make such a shoddy argument, but shame on Roberts!
