Biden Fails at ‘Friendshoring’
The administration’s instinctual protectionism is punishing American consumers and alienating our allies.
Friendshoring” is among the cringiest neologisms of the modern geopolitical era. It also happens to be an excellent idea. To “friendshore” is to site manufacturing and other aspects of the industrial supply chain within countries that share norms surrounding trade, rights, and the rule of law while avoiding countries (read: China) that trample upon them.
