This will not shock you, not even a little:
[The stupid Washington Post ed board] refers to these deals as "free trade" agreements even though an important part of both deals involves increasing protectionist barriers in the form of patent and copyright protection. This increased protection will raise costs and lead to increased economic distortions.Haw haw. Fucking economists and their technical technicalities. Also: "The Post has a long history of making things up to promote trade agreements..." GOOD ARTICLE.
