A McCain Talking Point?

Pejman links to Greg Mankiw's NYT article on trade policy to emphasize his point that today's neo-protectionists ignore or deny well-established facts on the overall benefits of free trade. Economists, the people who ought to know, are overwhelmingly free traders, and it's too important an issue to allow protectionist distortion to prevail in the national conversation. That sounds right.
