Abstract:

"In The Great Betrayal, Buchanan charges the architects of NAFTA and GATT with selling out the middle class and turning their backs on the nation. As the voice of populist conservatism, he speaks to the desperation of the millions of Americans who have lost their jobs as a result of the free-trade policies of the Global Economy. He shows how by exporting jobs to Asia and Mexico, the corporate elite is destroying the American dream and profiting from the exploitation of sweatshop labor. Abandoned by their government, American workers are being forced to compete with cheap Third World labor and, inevitably, are losing out." "Basing his arguments on the principles of our Founding Fathers and using real-life stories to illustrate the plight of the working class, Buchanan raises an impassioned call to arms. He offers a "new economic nationalism" and invites a battle for the heart and soul of the Republican Party in 2000 on the issues of national sovereignty and social justice. Republicans, neoconservatives, and Democrats cannot let his charges go unanswered."--Jacket.
