Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson is doing the Lord’s work in Asia this week.
He’s over in China, trying to pry open their markets and get them to drop their barriers to trade. And he’s telling them to stop pirating our copyrights and patents. He’s also pushing for more liberalization and deregulation.
At the same time, he’s been out defending the Bush boom, and for that matter, the capitalist boom spreading like wildfire in emerging countries throughout the world.
As the powerful former chairman and CEO of Goldman Sachs, this former investment banker carries a lot of weight in international circles. He’s winning points everywhere.
Our hat is off to him.
