  •  And subsidies, and corruption (0+ / 0-)

    There's no reason in the universe, other than politics and corruption, that we should be paying Florida sugar growers to keep inefficiently produce sugar when we are not allowed to freely trade with Cuba and other, more efficient sugar producers.

    Somehow I bet we could find some other productive uses for those billions and billions of subsidy dollars in ways which created a lot more job than these inefficient sugar farms.

    The point of these 'free trade' agreements are mainly about removing trade policies from the hands of governments, which could change and thus could change trade policies, and into the hands of corporate- sponsored unreachable 'trade authority' officials.

    So it's in part about freeing up capital & investment, and partly about destroying democracy.
