  •  But Brad, we must support FREE Trade at all costs! (none)
    ...so says Thomas Friedman...in the NY TIMES:

    Lordy, it is fun poking fun at France. But wait ...wait ... what is that noise I hear coming from the U.S. Congress? Is that ... is that members of the U.S. Congress - many of them Democrats - threatening to reject Cafta, the Central American Free Trade Agreement? Is that members of the U.S. Congress afraid to endorse a free-trade agreement, signed over a year ago, with El Salvador, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic? Mon Dieu! I am afraid it is. And for many of the same reasons France has resisted more [EU] integration: a protectionist fear of competition in a world without walls.


    Don't you wish there were a bunch of low paid Central American polical hacks just waiting to take Friedman's job?  I wonder what he'd say about CAFTA then?
    •  Friedman corporate political hack (4.00)
      I watched a Senator actually quote this jerk
      while ignoring the Harvard Public Policy professor
      who really knew the answers on international trade and fiscal policy on C-SPAN today
      on the China trade relations hearing.

      That's really frightening when our representatives
      don't get the Friedman is a paid for corporate hack...
      he has NO BACKGROUND in economics, NO BACKGROUND
      in public policy, NO BACKGROUND in business, NO BACKGROUND in international trade.

      and it SHOWS!  The guy couldn't analyze his way
      out of a paperbag.

      I have no idea why is at the NYTimes...he certain
      diminishes their credibility.
