China is a good example of protectionism

Its called protecting your national interest. Something that Americans have forgot about.

Over the past few decades we have been taught protectionism is a bad thing. But we see how its working out for china.

China is a good example of what protectionism can do for a country.

The US does not protect its industry, we do not protect our jobs, we do not protect our national security manufacturing jobs.

While on the other hand, china has a booming economy, and is building some of the largest man made construction projects in the world - the 3 gorges dam.

Chinas economy is also a good example of what free trade can do for an economy. In the early 1990s, china had a negative inflation. Instead their dollar buying less goods and services, the value of their money was getting stronger.
