Prosperity requires lowering trade barriers, not raising them

I fully agree with letter writer Thomas Jandl ("Free trade does not kill jobs," Aug. 30) that fewer trade barriers mean more jobs.

We are living in a worldwide economy and it is time that the people in the U.S. realize this as a great opportunity and not a threat.

It is tough for Americans to switch from a consumer to a creator when you don't have an efficient education system and poorly educated professionals. Other countries offer free education including college and trade school.
