America’s slow-growth economy can use all the help it canget. The president and Congress must lend a hand by creating conditions where businesses and agriculture can flourish. The approval of free trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia and Panama would do just that for American farmers and manufacturers…. The agreements have the goal of reducing or eliminating tariffs charged by South Korea, Colombia and Panama that increase the prices of U.S. products in those countries, making them less competitive compared with products from other nations that already have trade accords.
