My personal beliefs and opinions

I have a new page on the header bar titled, my personal beliefs and opinions. It is primarily for people new to the blog who wish to quickly ascertain where I stand on certain issues. If you’ve been following my blog for a while there will be no surprises but you may find it of interest nonetheless.

    How is it you can support free market economists (and by extension free trade), and at the same time nationalism (and presumably the protectionism it’s commonly associated with)?

    • Supporting the free market system does not equate to supporting international free trade. That is a false premise. Point 13 of the 16 tenets of the alt right:

      The Alt Right rejects international free trade and the free movement of peoples that free trade requires. The benefits of intranational free trade is not evidence for the benefits of international free trade.

        If trade between Victoria and Tasmania is a good thing, why then is trade between Victoria and the South Island of NZ a bad thing?

      • MarkT

        And a supplementary question: if I wanted to buy your book, and you wanted to sell it to me, why is that a bad thing and why should it be anyone else’s business?

        • Both of your examples have nothing to do with international free trade which is trade between nations.

    What a good idea listing “My personal beliefs and opinions”. We should all do it. Every ten years years. I know mine have changed, furthermore the very writing of them helps one rethink and therefore affirm what one stands for. Well done.
