Paul Krugman and other mainstream trade experts are now admitting that they were wrong about globalization: It hurt American workers far more than they thought it would.

Stated another way, “Sorry about gutting the workers economy for the past 30 years. Our bad. But you can still trust us.” (from foreignpolicy.com)

I respect Paul Krugman immensely, but this is a profound mistake on a historic timescale.
