Usually, anything with the term “free” on it has a positive connotation: free cookies, free appetizer, free purse with the purchase of any item over $45, this salad dressing is fat free. However, using the example of “fat free,”when we ran some studies on supposed “fat free,” we found nasty results. Fat free use to be this great, healthy thing for our bodies and it turned out being the total opposite. Now that people have been burned by “fat free,” they are buying less and less of it. The same issue has been going on with “free trade.” At first, it was great! It was this new idea of trade without tariffs or duties and that benefited any partnering country. However, after indulging 20 years in “free trade,” we realize how bad it really is for America.
