    I'm not sure the factory worker lost his job because of say NAFTA. He seems to of lost it mostly through automation. I mean I guess we could have trade agreements that impose crazy high import tariffs but i'm not sure that's going to bring back labor intensive manufacturing. Maybe we should have better training programs instead of just relying on ever higher import tariffs. I'm also pretty happy being able to buy imported goods. Though I guess if all nations imposed import tariffs on everything we could go back to a time of great diversity, travel would be far more interesting. It'd suck for the US tech and entertainment industry though.
