Brad DeLong Thinks -- You Should Listen

From a political point of view, I'm something of an anomaly -- a free-trade liberal. (Hell, a free-trade quasi-socialist).

Brad DeLong, economics professor at Cal, and former economics advisor in the Clinton Administration, recently posted to his blog a piece he co-wrote with Stephen Cohen, "Thinking About Outsourcing."

I continue to find Brad's thoughts and passion inspiring, perhaps surprising since the subject is, well, the dismal science. He's able to clearly articulate why free trade, and yes, outsourcing/offshoring are good things, but that it needs to be qualified with a social safety net, which will help mitigate the inevitable shifts within a national economy.
