Adam Smith Institute welcomes fightback against mercantilism
Following the Prime Minister’s speech yesterday, the Adam Smith Institute welcomed calls to tear down trade barriers post-Brexit.
The ASI’s Deputy Director Matthew Kilcoyne said:
"Boris is absolutely right to emphasise the role of free trade in raising more people out of poverty than any other idea in human history.
"Britain should now become the global champion of free trade in an increasingly mercantilist world. The Government is right to commit to reducing tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade with or without deals. We should go further by making it possible for Brits to live and work in the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand - for free people are part of the great exchange."
