33. Not really
I think a lot of the free trade supporters here honestly believe that some of the disagreeable things about it are an acceptable price to pay for the overall improvement it will bring. But what those of us who favor more protectionism (yes, I said it) and stronger regulations are trying to point out is that the improvement hasn't come for most people. The disparity between the haves and have nots has grown, not shrunk, since the U.S. and other countries embraced all this so-called "free trade".
