  • Schwab: Colombia Trade Deal Is the Best Stimulus Package

    The Club For Growth interviewed U.S. Trade Representative Susan Schwab for its new podcast. Among the topics discussed were the Columbia Free Trade Agreement, trade relations with China, the G20 meetings that took place over the weekend, and President Bush’s free trade legacy.

    Schwab had this to say about the Colombia Free Trade Agreement:
