Imposing tariffs, quotas, work content rules or anything else that restricts the free flow of goods across borders at prices set by a willing seller or buyer. I hope that helps. Obviously there are degrees of protectionism. We have too much of it as it is. By the way, trade treaties are not unconstitutional. They are ratified by Congress. I am tired of seeing the ludicrous assertion made.

"free trade" agreements are not treaties and are not ratified by Congress. There are a jolly lot of "working groups" doing an end run around Constitutional government these days doing the job of Congress minus the "elected representation of citizens" bit. I am tired of seeing the ludicrous assertion made by "free traders" that Congress's authority has not been usurped.
