Boudreaux to Dobbs: "You Are Mistaken"

Dr. Donald Boudreaux, Professor of Economics at George Mason University, writes this letter to Lou Dobbs. The harshest Boudreaux gets is:
Every night on CNN you claim to speak for these people. They are America's middle class: decent folks who work hard and play by the rules but who, you insist, are abused by the powerful elite. Free trade is one of the policies allegedly supported by the elite and for which you reserve special vitriol. You thunder that imports destroy American jobs, reduce wages, and make the economy perilously "unbalanced."

But you are mistaken.
Me, I don't mince words. I've made it abundantly clear that I think Lou Dobbs is an American idiot. Do yourself a favor and read the whole thing. Do yourself a second favor and check out Professor Boudreaux's blog at Cafe Hayek. Hell, read it. Every day.
