A must-read for every working American, this groundbreaking analysis of the global trade system convicts "free trade" on its capitalist merits.
Service jobs once believed insulated from international competition are moving overseas in droves, leaving behind millions of middle-class workers even as a second tech-boom blooms anew, in Bangalore.
Despite this dark and frank assessment, there is cause for hope.
Far from an anti-globalization screed or a tried-out exercise in protectionism, Second Class Tickets to the New Economy presents a fresh, new contribution offering workers hope for a fair shake in the New Economy by replacing free trade with free markets. By wising up to free trade advocates who falsely promote "free trade" as "free enterprise," voters can force policymakers to view free trade through the same prism as free enterprise, holding it to the same high standards of equal opportunity that characterize American capitalism and which are required by the Constitution.
When workers secure equal rights of access with employers to the global labor market they will end once and for all the reason why companies send jobs overseas.
