Mad about Trade is the much-needed antidote to a rising tide of protectionist sentiment in the United States. The book explains the benefits of free trade and globalization for middle-class, Main Street Americans exposed to a barrage of negative claims from politicians and commentators such as Lou Dobbs. It offers a spirited defense of free trade and globalization that engages the populists on their own turf. In eight timely and provocative chapters, the book shows how middle- and low-income families benefit from import competition, and how a more globalized U.S. economy has created better jobs and higher living standards for American workers through the ups and downs of the business cycle.
