Are agricultural products freely traded anywhere, including the US?
What about aerospace: Was the airbus the result of a free and unsubsidized market?
OK what about cars: Did Japan engage in free trade policies in the 70's in their Xray attacks on the US car market?
Lets see: steel? sugar? electronics? oil?
Freer trade is inevitable (I think) but when the US gives access lets get access in return.
as for the concrete point, if a car factory moves 100 miles across the US-Mexico border, it doesn't increase the standard of living here does it? but it does help keep a few thousand mexican workers at home.
