On Free Trade (Butler Shaffer)

Butler Shaffer on how a true free trade agreement might be written:

A free trade agreement need not take up thousands of pages of text. In fact, it could be written in one sentence: "no signatory to this agreement shall enact or enforce any statute, regulation, judicial decision, or other governmental restriction on the liberty of people to produce, purchase, sell, transport, or exchange any goods or services based upon terms freely negotiated by them."
