Today we speak of trade — fair trade, free trade, Trump trade.
It has been a little time since your Big Red Car has posted. Please accept my apology. I will do better in the future.
So, here we are with the issue of trade becoming a big argument in the Presidential election of 2016.
One candidate, Crooked Hillary, was/is for TPP (the TransPacific Partnership) while Donald Trump has been a huge critic of all trade deals suggesting they are one of the root causes of the offshoring of American jobs. Crooked Hillary is now not so much for the TPP and other trade agreements because a focus group told her her opinion.
Let us reason together, beloved readers, and see what a few facts may throw on the situation.
We shall focus on the famous Maquiladora economy on the Mexican side of the border with the United States.
