Candidate Review - Fair Trade - Rudy Giuliani

Giuliani is in favor of Free Trade in a big way; in fact he wants to tear down walls that keep Free Trade out. Or in.
Bringing more countries and people into the global marketplace will make America safer and create new markets for our products worldwide. America must promote higher living standards around the world, help reform the International Monetary Fund and World Bank to encourage pro-growth policies, and distribute foreign aid in ways that reinforce good governance and economic freedom, similar to the Millennium Challenge Corporation.

. . . Rudy will tear down the walls to free trade and create new markets for American-made products. He will protect America's innovations and intellectual property by enforcing our trade agreements aggressively.
I just have an image of Giuliani with a baseball bat knocking down unfair trade agreements, Teddy Roosevelt style. At any rate, I suspect that what Giuliani is talking about, by promoting higher living standards, is making sure that American Corporations are allowed to continue exploiting whoever they want.
