"If the national competitive advantage and zero-barrier trade theory was correct, then the US should be in a strong rather than a precarious economic state by now, considering how many barriers have been lowered (enough to allow most of the manufacturing jobs to leave the US)."

Whether this particular policy decision of Brazil govt is correct or not , I do not know. But the attempts by the developing contries to become self reliant in technology development, manufacturing , R & D should be encouraged by the developed nations by providing active partipation , knowhow transfer and helping to set up manufacturing bases.

This will overall benefit the world economy
