Jared Bernstein on fair trade

In this clip Bernstein discusses the differences between free trade and fair trade. The heart of free trade is that it benefits multi-national corporations at the expense of everyone else and the environment. Fair trade at heart puts workers, consumers and the environment at the core. Economies grow out of government rules of the road, and those rules at present come from the corporate interests that demand to be favored. It’s time for we the people to make the rules and the only way that’s possible is if we get involved and take back the government. See the clip for much more.

PS: As much as Trump rails against the free trade agreements, remember that he made his fortune by taking advantage of them. Does anyone really think he’ll change them and destroy that fortune?
