Low Tariffs and High Hopes

Vernon, Raymond
March 1955
New Republic;3/14/55, Vol. 132 Issue 11, p24
The article discusses the book "Revolution in World Trade: An American Foreign Policy," by Samuel Lubell. At bottom, what seems to be worrying Lubell in his new book, is that people are paying too much attention to the tariff issue and too little to other economic problems of the U.S. Those are the bare bones of his message; but his small book is populated by such a variety of hobgoblins, strawmen, jousts with windmills, and prescriptions for a brave new world that it proves a trifle exhausting.
