    is a fraud on the people of the world, and its supposed inevitability is a lie pushed by the financial interests that profit from the race to the bottom.

    So-called free trade is a product of a very specific decision to change the rules under which trade between nations is governed. All we have to do is change them back. Our nation, and many others, prospered and became economic powerhouses under the system of tariffs and duties that existed for many years.

    Free trade has not increased our standard of living--it has caused it to fall.
