Art Robinson: People shouldn't complain about free trade agreements
"There is little point in complaining that Americans are harmed by free trade although some so-called free trade mechanisms are not free at all, but are rather just new mechanisms by which bureaucrats and politicians can continue to control trade. The fact is that the terrible burden of taxation, regulation, and litigation that American workers, businesses, and innovators are required to carry on their backs assures that they cannot compete successfully in world markets. For this reason, American industries are closing in favor of more competitive enterprises located abroad."
