Quote Of The Day

“Free trade with Colombia can’t have anything to do with loss of US jobs: Colombia’s exports already enter the US duty-free. Rather, the Free Trade Agreement would reduce remaining Colombian barriers to imports from the US….It is hard to escape the conclusion that the only reason Congressmen are opposing the Colombian free trade agreement is to pander to ill-informed American public opinon. ” —Jeff Frankel, professor of economics at Harvard University

  • “Ill-informed” is tremendously understated! I am constantly amazed at how ignorant several of our politicians are regarding this trade agreement with Colombia. It would be a solid benefit to the U.S and to Colombia.

  • Kathy,

    “Ignorant” is also a tremendous understatement. The ass-backwards thinking and awareness of the aforementioned politicians is astounding and is too gargantuan and profound to describe in only one word. I suspect these nitwits oppose free trade with Colombia because they think Colombia is in Mexico.
