Even 10 years ago, political expert, media commentator and former two-time presidential candidate Patrick J. Buchanan argued that free trade could undermine the United States' economic well-being. In this pivotal volume, he expressed particular concern about the loss of U.S. workers' industrial jobs to overseas countries, a trend he felt even then could threaten the middle class. He argued for a return to tariffs to protect U.S. industries and for an end to participation in multilateral trade pacts and international organizations that operate contrary to the interests of the U.S. Buchanan, long a well-known spokesman for the staunchly conservative position in American politics, speaks from experience and knowledge, though those from the liberal wing might disagree with his conclusions. His expertise is evident, even to the free traders he is vigorously disputing. Read with the perspective of time passing, getAbstract finds that his book offers thoughtful ideas and a powerful argument for a more independent and nationalistic United States.Was this review helpful?
