Free Trade Reimagined: The World Division of Labor and the Method of Economics


"The established practice of international trade gives us cause to rebel until we reshape both market economies and globalization, not to reject the ideas of free exchange and of free labor but to radicalize them as bases for an open world economy. A changed theory of international trade gives us reason to reimagine until we see with new eyes the relation between constraint and possibility in the national and the world economies, and recover as transformative opportunity what we had mistaken for unyielding fate. We will not shackle humanity to free trade." Book jacket.
