I'll be specific.
If you are an American corporation and you ship all your jobs overseas, your entire corporation goes with it. Your executives live in the third-world squalor they exploit.
No country can import goods to the United States unless it allows FULL and COMPLETE access to ALL markets in that country. That's FREE TRADE and it does not now exist anywhere except the U.S. of A. which is now an abbreviation for "United Suckers of America."
All of you "pure" capitalists can demand pure capitalism from the third-world sewers now taking advantage of the United States in horribly lop-sided arrangements allowed by the traitorous elected politicians and corporations without loyalty or ethics. Those corporations claim to be American but would sell their own American mothers into prostitution to boost earnings-per-share.
I'm not disagreeing with your point, but as a side issue, the USA does not engage in free trade, not while we protect sugar prices, steel prices, and many others. I'm just saying that if we start doing what you suggest we'll soon be asked to do the same. Which is probably politically impossible.

"Free trade" is making the polititians, the bankers, the
stockholders, and the VIPs richer.
None of them give a sh*t what it does to American or Americans.

Interesting comments. I would like to hear about these unfair agreements we are in with other countries. As far as I knew, we also had some protectionist policies.
