Can't say I'm all that surprised: Buchanan's appeal was to much of the same demographic slice and he was positively frothing against free trade deals.

I do wonder though quite how the position of someone like me would be listed: for I oppose trade deals but from the other side. We shouldn't have trade deals simply because unilateral free trade is the only logically sensible position.

See Joan Robinson on the subject of rocks in harbours.

Thanks for good news! Your site is very useful for me.Welcome to my blog site:www.truereligionoutletjeans.com.


The whole "free trade is good for US workers" theme has encountered reality, and reality is not pretty.

Free trade is good for Wall Street, and good for CEOs and good for lawyers, and etc., but has been devastating for many US workers.

Either we share the pie or the peasants bring their pitchforks.

Free trade is also good for US consumers...

By asking whether free trade agreements like NAFTA are good for the US, the question is stated in a manner that probably splits Republicans and Tea Party Members. Many Rep. and TP members are for free trade, but view NAFTA and other agreements as simply a list of exceptions to actual free trade.

The blog has the best blogspam...the one from ryan and poker school was actually vaguely insightful!

Richard Hoogesteger

I'm not sure why this would be surprising. The Republicans long supported the protective tariff. Personally, I am very skeptical about free trade. The problems it causes with market failures, ranging from slavery to financial fraud appear to be much greater than whatever efficiencies are created.

Cafe Bruges

Yeah.. these tea parties are really harmful for Globalization...


'Global free trade' took my job & 40-year hi-tech career to India back in 2008 & left me with nothing. Yet politically I have naught but contempt for the tea-bagging morons & their right-wing puppeteers. Or is it the corporate-funded 'blue dog' D's who are so fond of these 'free trade' deals?

Right on re: the blogspam, Stephen Smith!

I promise this xkcd cartoon is actually relevant to your comment: http://xkcd.com/810/

(And you know, Prof Rodrik, now that the cartoon has raised the subject of captchas... I'm amazed at how effective Chris Blattman's seems to be--all the does is ask "is fire hot or cold?" and it seems to block all the blogspam.)

That’s really a bed news, the statistics show that there is huge fall in the trade percentage. Trade is never a bad thing to do, if proper research and right steps are taken, and then trade will be very useful. Nice article.

Don’t conceal from me your envy of those superstars carrying luxurious designer handbags. You may admire the famous fashion houses for the fantastic designs, but meanwhile hate them for the sky-high prices. And let’s take away the latter hatred and buy some replica handbags!
