Promote freedom as the key to economic growth

“One of the greatest contributions the United States can make to the world is to promote freedom as the key to economic growth. A creative, competitive America is the answer to a changing world, not trade wars that would close doors, create greater barriers, and destroy millions of jobs. We should always remember: Protectionism is destructionism. America’s jobs, America’s growth, America’s future depend on trade—trade that is free, open, and fair.” — President Ronald Reagan, State of the Union Address, 25 January 1988. www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/index….
