Good News For Free Traders
By the way, there’s also good news on the politics of trade from Democrats. Politico reports that after Tuesday’s results the 28 House Democrats who voted for trade-promotion authority in 2015 have either won their primaries or didn’t have a challenge. This is notable because Big Labor had promised to defeat the trade heretics. Maybe Hillary Clinton should rethink her retreat toward protectionism that began in the primaries against Bernie Sanders and has grown worse against Mr. Trump.
(I strongly suspect she will–and should.)
