I hope that the American political establishment takes a good, long look at the agreement between the Chrysler Group and China's Chery Automobile to import subcompacts to this country.
According to the Detroit Free Press, the Chinese subcompact will compete with the Honda Fit, Toyota Yaris and the Chevrolet Aveo. These are vehicles which have sold well this year.
On the surface, this seems to be a real kick in the face to American workers. How far should free trade extend? My impression is that China doesn't allow the sale of our goods in their country as freely as we sell theirs. Is that a correct impression?
