    The leaking of hundreds of pages of negotiating texts for an ambitious U.S.-European Union free-trade agreement is continuing to make waves in France and elsewhere in Europe, just days after President Obama expressed confidence that a deal – a key goal of his administration – is within reach. Already skeptical politicians and others see the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) documents leaked by the environmental group Greenpeace as confirming fears that the agreement would not be good for Europe. French President Francois Hollande responded to the leaks by saying he would not support the TTIP as it stands. The...

    ... Trump promises a return to tariffs. He also promises a wall with Mexico, penalties against profitable American companies, skimming foreign remittances, and more. Trump does not mince words, and you have to respect his forthrightness. What each of these solutions has in common is a heavy-handed government that imposes its will at the price of consumer freedom. What right does a White House staffer have to tell you what you can buy and the extra price you have to pay if you choose the wrong product? Your freedom to trade — to buy what you want — is what’s...

During a rally in Rhode Island, the Republican presidential frontrunner said that the Ohio governor should learn from Trump's children, whom Trump has urged to eat modest portions of food. "Did you see him? He has a news conference all the time when he's eating. I have never seen a human being eat in such a disgusting fashion," Trump said of Kasich. He continued: "I'd say, 'Children, small, little bites.' This guy takes a pancake and he's shoving it in his mouth. It's disgusting. Do you want...

    When Donald Trump threatened to “break” the North American Free Trade Agreement, auto industry workers offered up some of the loudest cheers. Mr. Trump easily won the Republican primary in Michigan this month. The state, home base for the American auto industry, also delivered an upset victory to Bernie Sanders, the Democratic anti-NAFTA standard-bearer. But the autoworkers’ animosity is aiming at the wrong target. There are still more than 800,000 jobs in the American auto sector. And there is a good case to be made that without NAFTA, there might not be much left of Detroit at all. “Without the...

How odd it is that an economic activity so beneficial to almost every American, indeed to the vast majority of the human race, suffers such attacks with only half-hearted defenses raised by politicians who should know better and economists who do know better. I stipulate: in trade, as in any economic endeavor, there are losers in the short run. Capitalism is, after all, fundamentally a system of creative destruction. But if there is any area of agreement...

    It’s election season, and that means it’s blizzard season – a blizzard of lies. The Michigan primary made it clear that the American people reject the free trade agenda of the donor class. Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders rode the anti-free trade wave to victory. In case any of the other candidates missed the point, a poll released this week provided further evidence that fealty to the myth of free trade is a sure-fire way to lose elections. Now that it’s clear how the American people feel, the presidential candidates are furiously trying to cover their tracks. The first question...

    Backs free-trade deals sending employment overseas. Ohio Gov. John Kasich is an enthusiastic free-trade advocate who boasts of job growth during his two terms as Ohio governor, despite the state’s continued loss of manufacturing jobs to free-trade outsourcing and the transformation under his watch of its economy from high-paying, full-time jobs largely in manufacturing to lower-paying, part-time service jobs. When he was representing Ohio in the House of Representatives, Kasich voted for NAFTA and supported the measure to extend “Most Favored Nation” status to China under the auspices of the World Trade Organization, much as he now supports the quick...

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Saturday blamed rival John Kasich for the economic collapse and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). “Kasich was a managing director” at Lehman Brothers, Trump said at a rally in Dayton, Ohio, on Saturday. “He was right in there dealing with the big boys, all the people who dealt the horrible decisions." Trump ripped Kasich earlier this week for his time at the investment bank, claiming that the Ohio governor “helped Wall Street predator Lehman Brothers destroy the economy.” “He voted for NAFTA,” Trump said Saturday.

    It was not so very long ago when a 33-year-old attorney spent much of his time during two seasonably hot weeks in his second-floor apartment in an Eastern city drafting an important document on a portable writing desk of his own design. Finally, a clean copy of his draft was submitted to an assembly of delegates, of which he was a member. Next, he spent an excruciating two and a half days while this assembly, sitting as a committee of the whole, edited every line of his draft. Finally, on July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress approved what we now...

    Breitbart) – Veteran pollster Pat Caddell warns that Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s vote for the North American Free Trade Agreement during his tenure in Congress could cost him both his approval rating as governor and the critical state primary. “I believe — I haven’t gone back and looked — but I think he was in Congress in ’93 and if so, I’d bet you he voted for NAFTA. How much do you want to bet? Somebody ought to look that one up. That’s the real point this morning that could change the election in Ohio,” he told Breitbart News executive...

    Every political challenger claims things have gone wrong and only they can set it right. In 2008, Barack Obama castigated the George W. Bush years and ran on the slogan of “Change.” In 1980, Ronald Reagan defeated Jimmy Carter by asking, “Are you better off than you were four years ago?” Twenty years before that, John F. Kennedy was elected by promising, “We can do better.” And the loudest voice in this year’s election, Donald Trump, is asking voters to “Make America great again”. But it’s not just Trump. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz and the rest of the Republican...
