Summary
  • The principle of free trade is under attack in the United States. Yet, there is no consensus on the precise role of trade in affecting American incomes. Important questions remain: To what extent is trade responsible for growing income inequality in the United States (and elsewhere), and can policymakers alleviate the ill effects of free trade while still reaping the benefits of open markets?
  • This important book joins the debate with a robust defense of the principle and practice of free trade in the United States. Editors Albert Fishlow and Karen Parker have collected essays from a number of leading economists and trade specialists that challenge the view that trade is solely responsible for growing inequality in the United States. The authors debunk the generalized notion that protectionism will reverse inequality, elucidating the complexity of a problem of income distribution that includes other key factors such as technological progress, foreign direct investment, immigration, and expanded higher education. The book avoids quickfix solutions, instead offering commonsense policy ideas that seek to sustain the efficiency-enhancing benefits for the United States of free trade while recognizing and redressing the plight of the "losers" in the global market economy
