In a March 2011 interview, Gary Johnson said that although he supported free trade, most free trade agreements at the time were products of "corporatism." He said that "the criticism of NAFTA should be rooted in the fact that big business became even bigger business."
Johnson supports free trade and opposes tariffs, "period." He believes free market trade corrects inequities between trading partners, such as foreign countries' subsidies for certain industries.
So much of the legislation we passed isn't really free market at all. It's touted as free market. When the reality is it ends up to be corporatism where one business gets and advantage over another. This is something I witnessed this as governor of NM, I'd like to think I'd veto that kind of legislation. I was always looking at business legislation from the standpoint of having it affect everyone equally as opposed to big business getting bigger than they already are.
