Trade With Your Friends

James R. Lilley, et al. are urging Congress to pass a trade agreement with South Korea which would reduce various trade barriers between the two countries. Congress, if they dare to be consistent, should follow Lilley's advice.

Trade sanctions are readily imposed on the country's northern neighbor. If the legislature recognizes that less trade is detrimental to a country, then clearly they should understand more trade is beneficial to it. Congress must lower trade barriers to South Korea, unless they believe that this democratic country of 50 million is actually part of the axis of evil.
