„Trade is simply too important for economic development to be left to free trade economists.“

—  Ha-Joon Chang Economist 1963
Context: The importance of international trade for economic development cannot be overemphasized. But free trade is not the best path to economic development. Trade helps economic development only when the country employs a mixture of protection and open trade, constantly adjusting it according to its changing needs and capabilities. Trade is simply too important for economic development to be left to free trade economists. Ch. 3, More trade, fewer ideologies, p. 83

„A free trade unionism is a bulwark of popular liberty.“

—  Stanley Baldwin Former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom 1867 - 1947
Context: Trade unionism, like friendly societies, is a peculiarly English growth. This country is the native soil in which such democratic institutions are indigenous. They are an integral part of the country's life, and they are a great stabilizing influence... Watch carefully the continuous efforts that are made by the Communist Party in this country to get control of and to destroy trade unionism. They do not want to destroy it for nothing. A free trade unionism is a bulwark of popular liberty. If trade unionism were destroyed you would be a long way on the road to Communism, and via Communism to Fascism. Speech to the Conservative Party Conference in Bournemouth (4 October 1935), quote in The Times (5 October 1935), p. 17.

„Rich countries have 'kicked away the ladder' by forcing free-market, free-trade policies on poor countries.“

—  Ha-Joon Chang Economist 1963

Already established countries do not want more competitors emerging through the nationalistic policies they themselves successfully used in the past. Ch. 2, Learning the right lessons from history, p. 61
