‘Progressive Protectionism’ details why evermore open borders are increasing inequality, reducing economic activity and threatening the environment. It explains how countries could rebuild and diversify their economies by limiting what finance, goods and services, and, most contentiously, the number of people, they allow to cross their borders. This will enable groupings of countries such as the European Union to challenge open borders and international competitiveness and thus wean themselves off export dependence. Domestic businesses and funding sources would then meet the needs of the majority in society in all countries. The prospect of such increasing economic security for the majority could gain widespread political support ranging from those on the left, the centre, the greens through to small ‘c’ conservatives.
