    What a complete idiot with absolutely no idea how capitalism and free-enterprise works!!! One example is that he states free trade means that a country can create junk which is then forced to be sold into another country, and I guess that we the end users are then forced to purchase it. This is simply not how it works. If a country is putting out crap, then no one will buy it and it won't be imported anywhere!!! The actual way that it works is there is first a demand for a product in the global marketplace. The person or persons who can meet this demand with a quality product and with the greatest value ends up being the winner and producing it. The product is not forced on people, the demand from the consumers results in the produc being supplied by an enterprising person with a good idea and a lot of hard work!! If you think that "consumerism" is evil, you are free to go live in a cave and eat bugs. Do us all a favor though and let the rest of us prosper and enjoy life!
