Trade is good

From "Steve Pierson" in yesterday's Standard:

In principle, a free trade deal between the US and the P4 countries (NZ, Chile, Singapore, and Brunei) is a good thing.

If we want our world’s limited resources to be used efficiently, we should not place artificial barriers in the way of trade without good reason blah, blah, blah...

With every "free trade" deal these days, the devil is in the details (just as The Standard's weasel words are in the "blah, blah, blah") but it's good to be see such rare rationality from the red trenches.  Bravo!

The  invisible hand of trade is sustainability.
