I'm just waiting for his counter-argument.

There is a established Free Trade Orthodoxy in academia that never varies on its support of Free Trade even after it's disastrous effect on the industrial vigour of national economies. Multilateral Free Trade has failed to meet any of its promises since the beginning of the globalist paradigm in the 1960s. Yet all of the caveats of its opponents.. from deindustrialization, decimation of the middle class, social disintegration, global financial chaos, encroaching impoverishment has been realized.

The academic institutions are bankrolled by financial and trading interests that are the only segments that benefit. It is almost always associated with regressive taxation and financial deregulation in nations that produces vast polarities of wealth and a supranational class of superrich. Don't believe anything you read about Free Trade if it comes out of Major University or the economic propaganda of Supranational Agencies.. WTO, IMF, World Bank, UN.

So instead of reading books on economics, we should just ask anti-trade advocates?

Trump plans major step toward pushing Congress to vote on North American trade deal �� despite Pelosi��s warning


The decision to send the draft ��Statement of Administrative Action�� to Congress would mark a major milestone in President Trump��s push to overhaul the 1994 North American Free Trade Agreement, but it heightens tensions with Democrats who have said they need more time to review the deal and work for changes.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi directly cautioned U.S. Trade Representative Robert E. Lighthizer not to send the draft report until Democrats had spent more time working with the White House on the plan. The White House can send the text of the deal to Congress 30 days after submitting the draft.

Congress will not give Trump the satisfaction of a victory. It'll be really hard to sell the "new improved" NAFTA to the poor schmucks living in the shadows of crumbling ruins that used to be factories, in America and there is little penalty fir the Democrats if they don't ratify it, especially seeing as Canada and Mexico are not rushing to sign the deal, either. My guess is that the agreement is a dead duck.
