The Power Of Economic Nationalism

nationalismShorty Dawkins – James Carville, who headed Bill Clinton’s successful campaign, had a sign on his wall, it is said, that read: It’s the economy, stupid.

International trade can and is often advantageous if it benefits all parties involved in prosperity from the transactions. However, in the un-free framework for maximizing the corporatism structure of above and beyond any particular country jurisdiction or trade policies, the globalists have set up the exact opposite from the much lauded “Free Trade” conduit.

The next argument points out the inconsistency in Economic Nationalism in the Age of Globalism (link), and asks:

Neoliberal insist on the forces of the free market operating without government interference to protect the national capitalist class and workers.
