myth of competitiveness
http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/24/opinion/24krugman.html
http://www.pkarchive.org/global/pop.html
{countries can't go out of business the way companies can; a country that did little trade would be immune to trade competitiveness, and in fact 90% of US GDP is domestic; statistics show that command GNP grows about as quickly as real GNP; Coke and Pepsi are rivals, but US and Europe are trade partners; welfare driven by domestic productivity, and as likely to be helped as harmed by foreign productivity. Bad effects of misallocation of resources, possible trade wars, and backing believers into a corner where they can't listen to real economists -- Clinton's health care plans were put in the hands of a competitiveness believer, who may have convinced himself economists were worthless, since they thought his ideas were worthless. Like creationists and biology/geology.}
