Quote of the Day: "Fair Trade" = Protectionism

"Fair trade" is code for protectionism disguised as retaliation against other countries that may or may not practice protectionism, and it's a bad sign when even Republicans talk about "fair" rather than "free" trade.

We should practice free trade no matter what others do, because freedom is good in itself. If foreign governments want to hurt their citizens, it's no reason for ours to hurt us.

~John Stossel
