5.0 out of 5 stars Pat Buchanan's plan to restore America to greatness, April 26, 1999
This review is from: The Great Betrayal: How American Sovereignty and Social Justice Are Being Sacrificed to.. (Hardcover)
Any negative review about this book could not have been written by anyone who read it. Buchanan writes about Our Great Nation and its slide into a declining standard of living that has been breaking down the Nation since the age of Free trade in America.
Buchanan documents quite well where America once was economically and socially, and its slow decline into globalization. He makes a good case backed up with solid reason and evidence that America should revert back to a "protectionist" system of trade, whereby tarriffs would be applied to foriegn imports that serve to destoy American industry.
Buchannan makes a case that "protectionism" in the past paid off national debts, brought about a balanced budget, a surplus funds, lower taxes, and a higher standard of living. Buchanan points out that free trade only works when everyone plays by the rules.
The book has solid statistical information and a lot of historical perspectives that most people never learned in school. My only criticsm of this book is the many historical quotes that slowed the book down for me as I reflected on what events were occurring at that time.
No doubt I am a better person for reading Buchanan's perspective
