I read "from a customer" review. What a joke, free trade is for suckers. Professor John Lott a doctor of economics was extolling the virtues of "free trade." I asked him to explain how an unemployed auto worker in Detroit benefitted the US. I never heard a word back from him or any other so-called expert on free trade. Gutting a country of its manufacturing base is the kiss of death. Why do you think Alexander Hamilton put the tariff system in in 1791 it was to encourage domestic manufacturing? Pure greed has caused this situation and Perot's book explains it perfectly.
Most of these people who have the "free trade" bug have not had their jobs sent somewhere else.
But a lie can only go so far before it eventually gets exposed. There is absolutely no denying that NAFTA cost hundreds of thousands of American jobs, rather than created them. And the American workers who didn't lose their jobs from it were impoverished. Don't believe me? Look what happened at American Axle. The workers took a 50% pay and benefit cut, and a year later, they lost their jobs to Mexico anyways. All in the name of cheaper labor.
Now we are in the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression, with the most imbalanced distribution of wealth in our country's history. And I think it's pretty obvious NAFTA is to blame. Shame on everybody who pushed for it or voted for it.
Again, Ross Perot and Pat Choate were absolutely right about this...
The WALL STREET JOURNAL immediately reviewed this book in 1993 and wrote: "This book is vintage Ross Perot. Catchy phrases, damning quotes, simple charts and simplistic arguments are deployed brilliantly in a short, pithy frontal attach on [NAFTA]..."
Could someone tell these guys that their careers as international economic experts just didn't work out?
