Celebrating Constitution Day

Okay, So This Post Is A Day Late . . .

The Constitution is a glorious document for reasons so many people know so well; separation of powers, bicameral legislature, checks and balances, Bill of Rights, you know the drill.

But as Don Boudreaux points out, the Constitution should also be celebrated because it has helped promote free trade within the United States.

It’s a very good point. So good, that it is worth mentioning to your favorite protectionist the next time he/she bemoans trade liberalization.
