Rod Donald Refuses His Free Trade Medicine
- When push comes to shove, logic in favour FTIA is lacking. It comes down to fear of being shut out of trade blocks, a fallacious argument if we don’t drop tariffs Hong Kong might introduce some - and a largely unshakeable belief that free trade “must be good for you”.
