Ya gotta get them econs of yours to read this new book - I been sayin that we needs a tariff to get some jobs and make some of our own stuff in the USA.
Well, this here book says it all - I read this book and Ima recommendin it to y'all. Here's the link to the website.
I even wrote a review on Amazon - here tis:
I had the pleasure of reading some of FREE TRADE DOESN'T WORK and discussing it with Ian Fletcher in the pre publication form. One of my interests for years has been the flawed theory of trade used to justify the free trade mantra and some of the real world effects that belief has brought.
Mr. Fletcher has brilliantly addressed both the theoretical flaws and the real world problems brought by Free Trade in the current published form of his new book. This book is a must read for policy makers in every country, especially the USA. Its arguments will set the tone for national economic policy for years to come.
Mr. Fletcher has combined sound economic theory with real world readability - an unusual feat for which he is to be congratulated.
This book has my wholehearted endorsement for any person interested in the subject - especially those who still believe in Free Trade as the best policy.
