As the federal Liberals negotiate NAFTA insisting on including gender and abolishing right to work laws, it becomes apparent that when big government gets involved in trade deals, the end result will be disastrous.
Free trade can only exist when there are two willing partners, and while it isn’t a global reality, there are successful economies based on open market policies and small government.
For example, take a look at Singapore. It has one of the freest markets in the world and has consistently been ranked as a top place to do business.
It also incentivizes bureaucrats based on how well the economy is faring.
Singapore is a great example of how small government and business friendly policies are a huge compliment to the economy.
Imagine the benefits if all governments used open market policies.
