The future of free and fair trade depends on rigorous enforcement of America’s multitrillion-dollar intellectual property industries.                                                                  This is about jobs — millions of them — and the rule of law.

Maybe [Trump] can do something to prove that he actually trusts the free market and free trade, instead of just crony capitalism, but he hasn’t yet.

The pressure applied [by Trump] to Carrier (and Ford) is nothing other than a stealth welfare scheme – because the reality of this is that consumers will be subsidizing these workers’ pay by paying higher prices for products that would otherwise be lower.  This also puts the manufacturer at risk against foreign competitors who will now gain a competitive edge in labor costs.

The Real Cost of Protectionism

… manufacturing jobs have declined in the United States largely due to automation, not international trade.  This trend will not be halted through protectionism.  For Trump to claim that he will bring those jobs back would be as ludicrous as if President Calvin Coolidge had promised blacksmiths that he would protect their jobs from foreign trade.   It wasn’t trade that put the blacksmith out of business; it was the automobile and Henry Ford’s assembly line.  And the economy was better for it: more jobs, higher wages, cheaper and better consumer goods.
