The Bernie On Trade

Here is The Bernie from the Daily News quoted by Weissmann in Slate:

So you have to have standards. And what fair trade means to say that it is fair. It is roughly equivalent to the wages and environmental standards in the United States. [Italics added]

As Weissmann points out this is really astonishing because it limits trade to Western Europe and a few other places.  We never realized how much of a neo-colonialist he is.
