Default Re: Global Trade and Preposterous Pants (Dan Drezner & Reihan Salam)

Poor rural Chinese typically save 40% of their income because they're at the mercy of the harvest and their health, and don't have access to food stamps, housing assistance, the kindness of wealthy neighbors, or insurance of any kind. This is obviously a problem for them and for capital formation in the Chinese economy. This is not our problem.

I'm not sure you understand either term, but who's the libertarian here? Don't tell me Drezner.

Maybe these guys aren't conservative/glibertarians?
