    A business-related trip last April took me to the Big Apple for the first time in my life so I tagged on a weekend to achieve a few personal goals, the utmost being to visit the memorial erected in honor of the victims of 19 terrorists, those nearly 3,000 people whose sad fates we witnessed via live TV and computer on September 11, 2001.

    We’ve all heard of “helicopter parents” who hover over their children, rescuing them at the first sign of struggle. I recall my child’s fourth-grade teacher instructing parents not to complete an assigned project.

    However, the picture-perfect replicas of world landmarks made it clear some families disregarded the teacher’s plea.

    Explaining the role of international trade on manufacturing jobs and the plight of the Midwest remains a daunting task for an economics professor. Perhaps this is because the telling of fables is so spiritually comforting.

    After all, it is easy to hope that prosperity will return to some beleaguered Rust Belt town if only we can stop Chinese imports. It is much harder to admit that our real challenges are homegrown.
