No Euphemisms

in Politics, Trade

Yesterday’s Wall Street Journal reports on the efforts of U.S. textile producers and their henchmen in Congress to protect Americans from the risks of more-open trade with Haitians.  The report’s title is "Haiti’s Trade Push Hits New Political Head Wind."  It’s subtitled ""Lawmakers Look Askance At Effort to Ease Tariff Rule Amid Globalization Concern."

I wish that the WSJ’s headline writers had written a more descriptive subtitle for this report, such as "Officeholders Look
Askance At Effort to Strip An Influential Special-Interest Group of
Monopoly Protection Amid Concerns that Failure to Do So Will Jeopardize
Their Political Careers."

"Rich politicians trying to keep Haitians poor"

"US Government cares not about poverty among Hatians."

That is why the law for minimum salary is not called law to favor unemployment.
