A Theory on Why Protectionism is More Popular Today
It might seem a bit strange that we see more protectionism now than a few years ago when it seemed that every business was being outsourced to Asia. I suspect that it might be due to the decline in the dollar. People who have heard about it interpret it as “foreigners are humilating us” and try to get back at them.
On the other hand, an attempt to psychoanalyze people you disagree with can make you sound very silly.
