 In Defense Of Wage And Environmental Parity Tariffs
Sixmil 36 posts, incept 2010-09-16

You can't enforce our laws in another country. That's why free trade needs a WTO and an EU and all kinds of other organizations that are nothing more than a vehicle through which to give up your sovereignty.

If we charged reasonable tariffs, we would not worrying about any of this. If you make trade about labor standards and/or the environment, all you are doing is creating holes in the system that busy-body politicians can use to control your life and keep themselves in power. Keep it simple - a single, floating tariff rate that applies to everything; goes up when we show a trade deficit, down when we show a trade surplus.

Once we do this, we will have the maximum benefits of trade without giving up our sovereignty or independence.
