Dedicated to Muso

in Reality Is Not Optional, Seen and Unseen, Trade

Here’s a letter, to the Wall Street Journal, in the spirit of my late friend Manuel Ayau:

You report that “The Obama administration is promising labor unions that it will enforce a range of worker protections in new trade pacts in an effort to win labor’s support of a revised South Korea free-trade agreement” (“Obama Courts Labor Support for Trade Deal,” August 4).

Translation: “The Obama administration is promising labor unions that it will raise the obstacles that poor foreign workers encounter when they try to compete against their far-wealthier American counterparts in an effort to bribe labor to scale back its greedy assault on American consumers.”

Sincerely,
Donald J. Boudreaux
