"Imagine if factories in America got orders for $540 billion of goods... the economy would be booming. ... that was just one year of our trade deficit."
Watch: What One-Sided Trade Pacts Are Doing To Our Jobs

I was on "The Nicole Sandler Show" recently talking about the one-sided trade agreements we've been tricked into and the damage they do to the economy. It's also quite entertaining. Seriously, it is. Bad puns, jokes and, of course, Nicole!!

On the show I talk about what the 2012 $540 billion trade deficit means. "Imagine if factories in America got orders for $540 billion of goods... the economy would be booming. ... that was just one year of our trade deficit."

The show was partly based on my recent post, New Fast-Track Bill Means Higher Trade Deficits and Lost Jobs.

And check out RadioOrNot.com.

PS Nicole and I are buddies and I'm on the show once in a while, so I can get away with terrible jokes and puns.
