Gov. Buddy Roemer Calls for Withdrawal From NAFTA, WTO / Politics / Protectionism

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have detailed in previous articles my search for a Republican presidential candidate who is good on trade issues. The candidates range from the pro-China Huntsman, to the corrupt and naïve Perry, to those who sound good but leave unclear where they really stand, like Cain, to those who leave doubt as to whether they would back up their nice words with deeds, like Romney.

Mitt Romney's Plan to Replace Free Trade / Politics / Protectionism

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs I've noted before, Mitt Romney has given some indications that he may be serious about doing something about America's trade mess. He's made tough statements about dealing with China which, if sincere, would not only put him beyond the other major Republican candidates on trade, but also far beyond what the Obama administration is doing.

United States versus China Round Two / Politics / Protectionism

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Chinese government, in an effort to maximize exports and minimize US imports, prints their Yuan to buy dollars. This prevents their currency from rising and the dollar from falling. Then it loans those same dollars back to America by buying US debt.

Why the Capital vs Labour Antithesis is Screwing Capitalism, Labour, and Free Trade / Politics / Protectionism

By: Submissions

David Chapman writes: The fundamental reason that "Free Trade" will end, and end badly, is that while movement of capital, goods and services is substantially free, and exchange rates are substantially floating, labour is imprisoned; creating massive imbalance.

Not Made in America at the Root of U.S. Economic Crisis / Economics / Protectionism

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGovernment attempts to inflate the money supply and stimulate growth through quantitative easing have failed, so far, because they gave the stimulus to banks, not directly to their citizens - stimulation will only work if the cash is spent:

  • Giving the money to bankers is the equivalent to burying it - banks used the money to shore up their balance sheets and do not loan it out
  • Consumers are already buried in debt and facing mass layoffs so taking on yet more debt by borrowing more money from the banks is not an option

How China Plans to Leapfrog the American Economy / Politics / Protectionism

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article(And it’s Not What You Think) - Many Americans are already concerned about China’s growing economic challenge to the United States. Indeed, the challenge itself is hardly news anymore. But a new book, Red Alert by Stephen Leeb, argues that Americans have radically misunderstood just what this challenge consists of.

Answering Objections to a Trade Tariff / Politics / Protectionism

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt’s only fair to answer some of the objections to the idea of an import tariff that I and others, like possible presidential candidate Donald Trump, have recently proposed.

One common objection is simply that our trading partners would just shrug it off by increasing subsidies to their exporters.

Why Donald Trump is Right on Trade / Politics / Protectionism

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe usual suspects are racing to debunk Donald Trump’s foray into the most serious protectionism—a 25% tariff on China—proposed by a major presidential candidate since Patrick Buchanan ran in 1992.

They know this is big. Our long-delayed national trade debate has begun.

Trade Tariff Would, Too, Fix Our Trade Mess / Politics / Protectionism

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI and my employer, the Coalition for a Prosperous America, are unabashed protectionists. I have written previously about how, for example, a flat tariff on all U.S. imports may well be the key to solving the ongoing trade crisis that is depleting our national wealth and gutting our industries.

Japan, the Forgotten Protectionist Threat / Economics / Protectionism

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEveryone's worried about China today on the trade front. And they should be.

But let's not forget that China is only the most brazen player of one-way free trade out there. We ran a $273 billion deficit with China in 2010, but we also ran an $80 billion deficit with the European Union and a $60 billion deficit with Japan.

No Need for Villains on the Trade Issue / Economics / Protectionism

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJudging by, among other things, the comments posted on articles about America’s trade mess, a lot of people are getting very angry on the issue. Words like “traitor” are making their appearance.

This is unfortunate, because if free trade is wrong, then it is coldly, factually wrong on its merits, and turning it into a drama of innocents and villains is unnecessary.

Why Public Support for Free Trade Will Collapse Soon / Politics / Protectionism

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor once, some good news: public support for free trade will almost certainly collapse over the next few years. On this issue, the public is way ahead of the political class in the quality of its thinking., and the average hardware store owner in Nebraska understands the real economics involved better than the average U.S. Senator.

Protectionism of the Future vs. Protectionism of the Past / Politics / Protectionism

By: Ian_Fletcher

Protectionism is frequently tarred as a backward-looking policy which merely preserves yesterday’s jobs at the expense of tomorrow’s. This is a snappy-sounding canard, but it has nothing to do with the contemporary critique of free trade. It does, however, have something to do with some of the cruder protectionist impulses that have sometimes surfaced in the past. As a result, it’s worth distinguishing between forward-looking protectionism (the good kind) and backward-looking protectionism (the bad kind.)

The Greater Depression Smoot-Hawley Redux / Economics / Protectionism

By: James_Quinn

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the Greater Depression continues along a parallel pathway with the Great Depression of the 1930s, Congress is about to commit the same blunder it made in 1930. The rocket scientists in the House of Representatives in September passed the Currency Reform for Fair Trade Act, which aims to crack down on Chinese currency manipulation by targeting imports from China and other countries with currencies that are perceived to be undervalued.

Free Trade Doesn't Work: Interview With Economist Ian Fletcher / Politics / Protectionism

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMichael Hughes Interviews Ian Fletcher - Free trade doesn't work, the global economy is a myth and the U.S. has been duped during trade negotiations for the past 40 years according to Ian Fletcher, an adjunct fellow with the U.S. Business and Industry Council and author of Free Trade Doesn't Work: What Should Replace It and Why, who relayed these concepts to me in an exclusive interview.

The Great Currency Wars, Return of 1930’s Style Protectionism? / Currencies / Protectionism

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn 9/18/2009 I wrote an editorial called ‘The Quiet Grab’. It discussed China’s deal cutting on the natural resources front, specifically in the rare earth element and petroleum sectors. The article pointed out that the Chinese were quietly provisioning ready supplies of strategic assets for the turmoil that lay ahead, particularly arising from a disdain and mistrust of paper instruments, especially currencies. With the USFed’s second iteration of quantitative easing now underway, the currency battles are starting to heat up and so is the rhetoric. This week we take a look at the ongoing (and intensifying) currency wars, strategic assets, and why we are behind the proverbial eight ball.
