Q: You’re backing the proposed free trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia and Panama. How would these help small businesses increase their exporting?

A: Small businesses are very supportive of these trade agreements. The rationale is pretty straightforward. Small businesses want a level playing field. What these trade agreements do is take off tariff barriers to our businesses so we can export without these costs, to key countries South Korea, Colombia and Panama.

The numbers are significant. Small businesses say they want a level playing field, then they can compete. They have innovative, made-in-America-quality items that are in demand. What they want is the chance to provide them without additional tariffs costs.

Alexander Hamilton
"Not only the wealth, but the independence and security of a country, appear to be materially connected with the prosperity of manufacturers. Every nation ... ought to endeavor to possess within itself all the essentials of a national supply. They comprise the means of subsistence, habitation, clothing and defense ... The expediency of encouraging manufactures in the United States, which was not long since deemed very questionable, appears at this time to be pretty generally admitted."

"To a large extent our government has not yet realized that the self-interests of our corporations, especially our large global corporations, can diverge from the interests of our country. We need to find ways to fundamentally "change the motivations of corporations to align with those of our country ."
--(Ralph Gomory)
