[quote]But you don't. So shhhhhhhh[/quote] You're transparent. No one buys your deflection. You're not insightful or clever. Go coalesce with your intellectually deficient friends in Brooklyn and quit bothering this board. And I say that not because this board rejects people who share your opi...

[quote] Again it is not clear that taking these actions would improve America's interests. Second in a broader sense there is an American interest in reducing and eliminating communism. Third there are a lot of economic reasons that causing devastation to China (or any other country) is n...

re: I'm at an intellectual crossroad (Free Trade) - Turbeauxdog
[quote]What? You said that a marginal gain for us would be worth the severe loss for China. So I'm asking that if we can hold our gains/loss to 0, would it be worth a loss to China? Humour me.[/quote] Sorry, I should have been more clear. The way I would evaluate that question would be to...

re: I'm at an intellectual crossroad (Free Trade) - Turbeauxdog
[quote]China can actually go toe to toe with the U.S. [/quote] Agreed, but being free to practice protectionism in direct conflict to our trade agreement with no repricussions is not going toe to toe, it's beating us. [quote]helping strengthen civil rights there (slowly, I'm not claiming they ...

[quote] I still don't understand what this means. I am guessing it implies that we should be looking to balance the competitiveness of each nation in every industry[/quote] No I just mean a price indicative of competitive (read: not protectionist) forces from all global market participants....

re: I'm at an intellectual crossroad (Free Trade) - Turbeauxdog
[quote] Sure we aren't talking about completely ceasing trade but incrementally increasing protectionism (we respond, China responds to our response, etc) tends to slowly dry up trade. [/quote] I just can't fathom with our position and leverage in any negotiation that we have to choose to accept...

re: I'm at an intellectual crossroad (Free Trade) - Turbeauxdog
[quote] Please explain "Globally competitive" prices[/quote] Sure. If you punish protectionism, you reduce protectionism (in theory, and granting deference to corps doubt it would be implemented rationally). If you reduce protectionism, prices are driven by competitive forces not protectionist...

re: I'm at an intellectual crossroad (Free Trade) - Turbeauxdog
[quote]In a sense that is fine. The problem is just in th implementation. Overall I don't think the unfair protectionism hurts America as much as a lot of people do. In some situations the remedy is worse than the wrong.[/quote] If we don't trust the government to manage trade deals why do we let...
