Quote of the Day: Free Trade

Bill King reminds us that decades ago Milton Friedman chided those that worry about the US trade deficit by asserting the US gets real products while all that foreigners garner for their efforts is dubious paper…Eventually foreigner will get it and adjust. That process might have already commenced.

The folks at GATA retort: Free and fair trade: They give us Poisoned food and toys, we give them  fraudulent securities . . .  Everybody wins!
