Yes to Fast-Track Authority

I applaud the fact that the U.S. Senate finally is seriously considering giving fast-track trade-negotiaing authority back to the U.S. president.  While trade deals struck by governments are never ideal – because ideal is complete and unconditional free trade (unilateral if necessary) – such deals, in a world infected with politics, do tend to make trade freer than it would otherwise be.  And that’s a very good thing.
