China

Trade agreement with China is critical

Buying and selling are the fundamentals of trade. However, cheaper products are easier to trade than more expensive ones. Hence, developing nations have an advantage over developed nations, cost of labor being the key factor. The only way to properly compete with low wage countries is to have a fair trade agreement in place. A trade barrier is not an option. If we decide to protect our jobs by creating a barrier, so would our trading partners.

It is a foolhardy idea that protectionism will help any individual nation.

Our problems do not lie with NAFTA, but with our own unchecked and unregulated free market system which has allowed a communist nation to siphon our precious jobs...
