It might seem that when jobs start growing scarce, everything should be done to create new ones in the country in question, and to discourage investment that creates jobs in other countries. That is the simplest source of protectionism. Politicians need votes, voters need jobs, so someone comes up with the idea to support France's automotive industry on condition that this support is earmarked for jobs in France. Pure protectionism and dirty politics; the results act like poison on business relations. Is it sensible to try to save a hand by poisoning the whole body? Among other things, we need the European Union to oppose protectionism. Theoretically everyone agrees on this, but only when things are going well. When difficulties appear, protectionism rears its old and ugly head. The bigger the problems, the bigger and more arrogant the head. We're having considerable problems in the EU now, so the temptation of protectionism is growing. At the end of this road leading through conflicts and contradiction of the essence of the community, there awaits a two-speed EU. That's a polite name for the beginning of the end.
