ABSTRACT
This article analyses the trade policies of U.S. President George W. Bush. The administration has imposed taxes on imported steel and has committed other sins against free trade. Conservatives and liberal writers have found a rare accord in trashing Bush for putting politics over principle. Bush made his protectionist moves in part, to promote free trade in adverse circumstances. If his strategy is flawed, the free traders should come up with a viable alternative. In a recent meeting with journalists, commerce secretary Don Evans argued that Bush had no choice under the law but to impose tariffs on steel. That is not true.
