Free Trade Doesn't Work: What Should Replace it and Why

Author: Ian Fletcher

Book Site: Free Trade Doesn't Work What Should Replace it and Why

This book examines the history and politics of free trade and explains how America came to adopt its present free trade policy.

The book is divided into three parts: the Problem, the Real Economics of Trade, and the Solution. In the Problem section, Fletcher describes the US situation and goes over the standard arguments for free trade and some of what he calls wishful "remedies" to the U.S. trade problem. In the second part, he provides an analysis of core ideas of "comparative advantage" and why this does not justify free trade. The final section of the book provides information on trade policy and theory that small business owners will find useful.
