1. Free Trade Is Nothing More Than An Attempt To Re-Make
the world into America's image. It only benefits a small, small number of people, and it does not raise the living standards of the world's poor population.

Population control, education (esp. education of women), resolution of ethnic strife, greater democratic control of governments, and better management of natural resources would do far, far more to alleviate world poverty than "free trade" could ever do.

Giving our software jobs to India will not improve the lives and the fortunes of the average Indian.
