Free Trade Under Fire

“So should we succumb to a race to the bottom and a protectionism that history tells us that, in the end, protects no one? No. We should have the confidence that we can seize the opportunities ahead and make the future work for us.”

–Gordon Brown

Good words, PM, but it seems like you need to be saying them more strongly in your own country.

Nativist sentiment and government policies which gives money to banks in return for more lending at home stand to undermine British economic recovery. I have said it before and I will say it again: there is no fair trade but free trade.
