On BBC in 15 Min

-- by Dave Johnson

I am going to be on BBC's BBC World Have Your Say radio program in 15 minutes. There is a 'Listen Live' button there.

I am arguing in favor of protectionism -- protecting our workers' wages and living standards from being undercut by low-cost goods made in non-democratic countries that exploit workers and the environment.

This is based on my posts Bring Back Protectionism and Protectionism Means Protecting Ourselves.

Gotta run...

You should be enthusiastic about the Viking Range story. These high end appliance are designed and built in Greenwood, MS. From a gleam in the eye to employing 1,000 plus in the MS Delta, with traditionally low per capita income. Success against high odds.
