President Trump’s protectionist stance has been cemented by executive order withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Protectionism has swept Europe; Trump is not an isolated believer.
Much of the world’s infrastructure is built by international firms, their success built on scales of economy and expertise.
In the new protectionist environment, major infrastructure will increase in expense and/or decrease in quality.
My question is – where are the economic advisers, educators and leaders that help people understand the facts of globalisation, rather than the beliefs about globalisation?
