Trade Zones


[Note: this page is not complete, but I wanted to include it in my commentary because the issue of 'zones' is critically important to understand how our economy is being transformed to a centrally planned economy and how incompetent people like Payal Tak and Lurita Doan are being used as fronts to implement the agenda.]

There are several different kinds of 'trade zones'.  From what I'm seeing as I research this, these zones are the means through which the U.S. economy will become a controlled and centrally planned economy.  The government grants applications for zones.  The zones have a 'private board' that chooses who can locate within the zone.  The businesses within the zones receive a myriad of benefits from tariffs and taxes to preferences on government contracts.  Businesses outside the privileged zones are competing at a significant disadvantage to businesses within the zones.

Foreign Trade Zones (FTZ)



Kelo vs New London



Foreign Trade Zones (FTZ)

As I looked at the list of the FTZ's the one that caught my eye was in New London, CT.  Phizer Pharmaceuticals has a 'foreign trade zone' there.  It makes me think that there was a whole lot more to the Kelo vs New London case than we were led to believe.  My guess would be that the U.S. Dept of Commerce created a Foreign Trade Zone in that area and gave Phizer the franchise.  Because of the FTZ designation, it was really out of the hands of New London CT.  So why didn't New London fight the designation?   Maybe it had something to do with New London being on the hit list during the last BRAC round of military facility closings?   What I wonder was why the attorney representing the property owners in New London was fighting the city when he should have been challenging the 'Foreign Trade Zone' law. 

I found another organization promoting FTZ's.   It's called NAFTZ.  

OMG!    It just occurred to me that the U.S. Dept of Commerce could have designated the entire route for the Trans-Texas Corridor and the CANAMEX as 'Foreign Trade Zones'   and put them under the control of a private board - like NASCO.    If that's the case, and they try to fight to save their property based on eminent domain laws, they will probably lose because the designation of FTZ effectively creates a 'foreign island' on U.S. soil.   I'm not an attorney but it seems to me that when a challenge is made, you have to direct the challenge to the source of the problem and not just a peripheral part of it.  



granted Phizer the designation of FTZ with the concurrence of the City of New London officials (check their assets and bank accounts - before and after).
