Reischer, Otto R.; Bronz, George
June 1961
New Republic;6/12/61, Vol. 144 Issue 24, p13
Comments on the analysis of Asher Brynes that the rise of foreign imports has a role in the growing dissatisfaction with a free trade policy in the U.S., and that organized labor may have made its threats to induce voluntary export quotas by Japan. Opinion on the incorrectness of saying that labor wants protection from liberal trade at any price; Diffidence of liberal traders in public debate than the protectionists; Inclination of the liberal trader to defend the reduction of trade barriers for the greater good which might be achieved.
