Mary Anastasia O’Grady has an excellent article in today’s Wall Street Journal on the Obama administration’s failure to push the U.S.-Colombia preferential trade agreement. She rightly points out that the terms of the agreement should be especially favorable to mercantalists, since the agreement would see no reductions in the tariffs the United States places on Colombian goods – most of which already enter duty-free under the terms of the Andean Trade Preference Act – but will oblige Colombia to open its markets to those U.S. exports the administration is always banging on about.
