FTN Daily #18 — Monday, October 24th 2016 — Business and Economics

The robots are here to help you — Free Trade is here to help you — Entrepreneurship may not be right for you

I, For One, Welcome Our New Robot Colleagues

No. Robots are not making your life worse. They make your job easier and produce more stuff you can afford. Scott Andes for the Brookings Institution.

The Progress Train is Losing Steam

World Trade is growing slower than world wide production and may affect national economies. But why? S.K. for The Economist.

Free is Fair

Opponents of Free Trade deals like CETA and TTIP condemn the poor to stay poor. Bjørn Lomborg for Project Syndicate.

Beware the Hun!

German socialists of all parties are trying to stop free trade. To the detriment of their compatriots and everyone else. Dalibor Rohac for CapX.

The Entrepreneurship Trap

No, not everyone is cut out to start their own business. And that’s ok. Amber Naslund for NewCo Shift.
