One of the least of the regular columnists at the ever shrinking Denver Post, David Sirota, who took over the looney lefty slot from Paul Campos, had an article
Saturday mildly critical of the Obama Administration for not protecting local manufacturers with tariffs. At least that's what I think he means. You have to translate from time to time. He starts:
A sovereign nation investing its wealth in its domestic economy seems like a no- brainer, especially during a global recession.
...Businessweek in 2008 warned that in an America with few domestic purchasing mandates, any economic stimulus — whether spending or tax cuts — would likely "leak" abroad, thus "reducing its impact on jobs here."
