Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Why would protecting domestic assets necessarily be bad? I don't think a country should allow the strip mining of its assets and the impoverishment of its population by capitulating unconditionally to 'market forces'. If not protectionism, what other weapon do we have against 'unfair competition' from areas with lower production costs due to their failure to implement to proper environmental and labour regulation? Do we really want to participate in a race to the bottom?
