Rodrik argues that free trade and globalization are better than the alternatives--but that we need to recognize that free trade does create winners and losers within any economy. He argues that part of government's job is to ensure this balance between open markets and free trade, while channeling some of the gains from free trade into easing the pain that free trades and open markets can cause to some workers and industries. It's an incredibly practical approach, simple and yet revolutionary.
