About those moves toward protectionism...


This is more along the lines of anti-immigrant rhetoric, but I always look at these sorts of things as part of the same overall package. Countries that wish to shut their borders to immigrants because they make immigrants a scapegoat for their problems are only a couple steps away from blaming foreign competition as well. In Germany, that would be a bit of an odd case, but it isn't implausible. I'm still wondering if and when we will see a major country send its trade barriers on up.
