Trade news

A very reassuring post from Matthew Yglesias on Laura Tyson’s convention discussion of Kerry on trade. Relatedly, see his post at the Prospect’s convention blog (“We still need to know which advisors will have Kerry’s ear if he gets into the White House. So far, most indications I’ve seen indicate that the free traders have the upper hand.”) and Ryan Lizza’s “Rubinomics Redux” post at the TNR blog. All sounds like pretty strikingly good news. (No, I don’t expect Kerry to be perfect on trade. But he does, at the moment, seem to get that Clinton’s way is better than Gephardt’s– or Bush’s.)
