With all the knowledge of these agreements on the web and the massive loss of jobs and prices creeping by people's pay cuts, you still think there's some magic formula out there that tells you some genius worked it all out.[/quote]There is no better formula for our economy, the worlds economies which are inextricable from ours, than free trade.]
Was that the genius from S&P who rated the US as AAA up until the very second GW announced "Oops!"?[/QUOTE]Our down grade came when congress did not pass the increase in debt limit during Obama's term, not GW. Our trade agreements are based on free trade as they should be and most countries do what their labor force does best, which is the basis for comparable advantage. "Controlled integration" is the use of some local control over our trade but with a basic free trade world economy.
