Trumpian Trade

The 24th post on the Journal of American Greatness originally published in March, 2016.


This is getting a lot of attention.

I don’t know enough about trade (or economics ) to say whether or not the arguments are correct.  But it seems evident that what we’re doing right now isn’t working.  It’s certainly not working for anyone outside the financial and tech sectors.

The American economy feels like a ship on one of those pre-Columbian maps, sailing straight for the edge of the world.  Change course?  Unthinkable!  All the wise and good know that the earth is flat.  Trust us!

What if, in this case, it isn’t?
