ReasonTV video on Protectionism at the Smithsonian

ReasonTV just produced an eye-opening video regarding how easily politicians can utilize rhetoric to create economically absurd policies.  In the video below, Bernie Sanders works to make sure items sold in the Smithsonian Institution’s gift shop are made in America. Sanders clearly ignores the negative consequences of his ideas, or he doesn’t care. Either way, it is bad economically for all Americans as a whole. Enjoy the video below.
