Free-trader Daniel Drezner offers full coverage of Mankiw’s pro-outsourcing testimony before Congress. Brad DeLong defends Mankiw, free trade and outsourcing. John Kerry attacks Mankiw’s words and his campaign. He also dismisses a voter-calling service that had been routing its phone calls through Canada.
My idea: Unless a candidate supports free trade, his party can only drive supporters to the polls with American-made cars.
Update: The Kerry family fortune operates 57 factories in foreign countries.
