Kondracke Gets An Assist!
Mort criticizes the Democrats and their friends in Big Labor:
The labor movement is determinedly protectionist, following an archaic economic model that envisions keeping U.S. wages up by keeping cheaper foreign products out-yet at the same time insists that other countries buy U.S. goods even though their workers can't get richer by selling to the U.S.
Free trade economics-once embraced Democratic party, but now a Republican idea-holds that workers everywhere get richer when their countries can sell their products in world markets and buy commodities at the cheapest price.
