Self-Publishing Review gives Free Trade Rocks! four stars, and says: “International trade policy has come to the forefront of global politics, making Free Trade Rocks! 10 Points on International Trade Everyone Should Know by Ray Keating a timely and fascinating read for a suddenly curious demographic. Keating manages to bring this seemingly dull subject to accessible life with real-world examples often torn straight from recent headlines, along with a comprehensive and (mostly) impartial view on the topic. As the exclamatory title suggests, Keating is a fan of free trade, but his deep expertise spanning a wide range of subjects and career paths makes this book an engaging, informative, and essential read for those who want to weigh in on this hot-button issue."
Also, George Leef, the Director of Research at the James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal, observes, “Ever since Donald Trump started talking about foreign trade, I have thought that what the country needs is a clear, easily understood book that explains why the government should not mess with free trade. Lo and behold, Ray Keating has written exactly that book. Free Trade Rocks! clears away the myths and misconceptions that trade interventionists count on.”
As for the best agenda on trade, Keating declares, “Kill tariffs, eliminate quotas, and reduce government rules and regulations that burden consumers, entrepreneurs, businesses and workers, and discover, once again, how much free trade rocks!”
