Freedom of Consumer Choice
Posted by: Jon Henke on Tuesday, April 22, 2008

Don Boudreaux posts a letter he sent to the Washington Post...
Emily DeRocco complains that "The April 9 Business article 'Don't Blame NAFTA for Downturn, Many Economists Say' quoted politicians, economists and labor representatives but not a single manufacturer - those at the heart of this wrenching debate" (Letters, April 12).

She's mistaken. Those at the heart of this debate aren't manufacturers (or politicians, economists, or labor representatives). Those at the heart of this debate are consumers. Or, those at the heart of this debate should be consumers. Unfortunately, consumers are too large in number and too disparate in interests to organize effectively for political purposes.
John McCain ought to respond to the Know-Nothing protectionists he's running against by saying: "My opponents believe that Americans should not be allowed to buy or sell some products from some foreigners. That kind of prejudice against people by nationality is not helpful to American consumers, and I don't believe that is a choice politicians ought to be given. I support the right of Americans to make that decision for themselves."

All this anti-trade talk must really enhance America’s image abroad.

Smoot-Hawley lives. I’m very opposed to the Iraq war and an aggressive foreign policy, but those who oppose that seem to want to oppose trade. What am I to do?!

That kind of prejudice against people by nationality ...
Its one thing to tell Protectionists they are wrong.

But tacking on the slur ’Protectionism = Racism’ is not really going to win any minds (or votes).
All this anti-trade talk must really enhance America’s image abroad.
Name who you feel are the top 3 protectionist trading partners for the US. Then list what you have done to react negatively to their behavior.
