** Is Globalization of Trade a Blessing or a Curse? with Dr. Donald Boudreaux **
Dr. Don Boudreaux is a Professor of Economics at George Mason University. He is the author of Globalization, an introduction into the basics of free trade. He blogs at Cafe Hayek (www.cafehayek.com).
Would we be better off if we traded with fewer people?
Are jobs really "stolen" when they go overseas? Does protectionism create jobs?
Is "fair trade" really all that fair? Should we only "buy local"?
Can you have a trade deficit with the grocery store? Is there even such a thing as a "trade deficit"?
There are many fallacies that are presented as valid economic arguments –by un-educated politicians!
Dr. Boudreaux will address these commonly voiced fallacies and provide correct understanding on the mechanics of trade.
He will present why Borders and Intervention make the World Poorer, why Free People NEED Free Markets and how we all can be More Prosperous, More Peaceful and enjoy More Freedom by trading more Globally.
Tune in to this show to hear the myths of protectionism shattered. With guest host Drew Hjelm.
