Conceivably, we could be witnessing the start of a break from the era of US-led globalization in which Washington preached unfettered trade to the rest of the world.

People might begin to ask deeper questions. If free-trade agreements are the road to greater US prosperity, how did the United States wind up in this deep hole?

Somehow, freedom from coercion and the ability to voluntarily trade is “dogma,” and firing up the push-button masses with emotive content that is nothing more than pseudo-patriotic preaching is “responsible.” William Greider is better off sticking to the secrets of the temple.
