Patrick J. Buchanan discusses The Great Betrayal: How American Sovereignty and Social Justice Are Being Sacrificed to the Gods of the Global Economy.

Pat Buchanan has seen firsthand the devastating effects of America's slavish devotion to global free trade. As a Republican candidate for president in 1992 and 1996, he met plenty of American workers who had been sacrificed to the Global Economy, and saw towns and regions abandoned by the industries that once supported them. While America boasts of having a strong economy-a powerful stock market, booming corporate profits, record CEO salaries-the men and women he met on the campaign trail told a far different story. With free trade now supported by both parties, more and more businesses are closing up shop in the United States and moving elsewhere, taking thousands of jobs with them. The result is a sharp drop in Middle America's standard of living-a trend that has continued for twenty-five years-and a national divide between the global elites and those who have been left behind. Now, in The Great Betrayal, Buchanan charges the architects of NAFTA and GATT with selling out the middle class and turning their backs on the nation. As the voice of populist conservatism, he speaks to the desperation of the millions of Americans who have lost their jobs as a result of the free-trade policies of the Global Economy. He shows how by exporting jobs to Asia and Mexico, the corporate elite is destroying the American dream and profiting from the exploitation of sweatshop labor. Abandoned by their government, American workers are being forced to compete with cheap Third World labor and, inevitably, are losing out. Basing his arguments on the principles of our founding fathers and using real-life stories to illustrate the plight of the working class, Buchanan raises an impassioned call to arms. He offers a "new economic nationalism" and invites a battle for the heart and soul of the Republican Party in 2000 on the issues of national sovereignty and social justice. Republicans, neoconservatives, and Democrats cannot let his charges go unanswered. —from the publisher's website (timspalding)… (more)
