    Rand trapped in a mini interview during book signing - video

    http://wn.com/millers?orderby=published

    I'd actually have been interested on his views on the Korean 'free trade' agreement. On the one hand, I know he is for free trade, on the other, so is Ron but he is against the sovereignity interfering aspects of the Korean agreement and putting international controls over our laws, and the managed trade aspects, reserving benefits of trade so much to the well connected. It is one of the areas of Rand's views I would like to see flushed out and he didn't touch on it at all in his book. And it looks like he didn't want to answer, here, although that might have been because the woman was holding up the line at a book signing the whole time.

    From my understanding: Rand believes in free trade, and doesn't want an outside "party" bypassing Congress to decide on things. That's one of the reasons CFG was so slow to endorse, as they didn't think he'd support a free trade bill that was 51% good and 49% bad. But I guess the votes will speak for themselves....
    "And who the hell are you?" he asked. "Me?" said Galt. "I'm the driver."

    Economically free trade is beneficial to all acting bodies individuals and nations. The United States tends to do things backwards though, which severely impacts trade.

    In free trade the little guys get as much of a piece of it as they can compete for. In 'free trade agreements' typically 'trusted trade partners', i.e. corporate cronies and the best connected, skim most off the top and the little guy has no realistic resource as disputes are resolved in international bodies with negotiated stacked decks your average independent truck driver can't afford to avail themselves of, in any event. Plus, no way do they have the authority to impact our ability to make laws domestically by international agreements rather than Constitutional amendments.

    "Free" should not be part of the title of any of these trade agreements.

    Actually, he did well. He was nice and listened to her. Didn't realize she was a TP leader.

    I wasn't saying he didn't handle the interruption well, I just knew his answer to the first question already and wish he had answered the second one, instead, where I am less clear on what his answer would be.

    I actually wasn't referencing anything you said. Don't get mad.... I didn't read what you wrote till after I watched the video and posted. I like to go into the videos with no bias.

    That's the impression I got. I've seen a lot of book signings that speed people through those things much better.
