Adam Smith Institute: Supporting free trade with abandon

In support of free trade:

The trade which can lift peoples out of poverty is assailed from many directions. A motley assortment of protectionists and anti-capitalists use every argument they can lay their hands on to protect their interests. From the CAP to 'food miles,' the effect is to deny poorer people the chance to gain wealth by selling us what they produce. Those who embrace free trade as an instrument of good can now express their support for poorer peoples by proclaiming an intention to buy their produce.

The coolest wristwear in town simply declares "I BUY GOODS FROM POORER COUNTRIES." The bands are available from the Adam Smith Institute, and they are free. E-mail us (wristband@adamsmith.org) with a mailing address and we'll send you one.

HT: Poor and Stupid
