    Introduction In an era of globalization when states are becoming increasingly interdependent, regionalism is seen as an intermediary stage for further multilateral trade liberalization. There are, however, two types of regionalism. One is discriminatory where there is free trade amongst the members of the region but non-members are excluded as in the case of free trade areas, such as the North American Free Trade Area (NAFTA) and customs unions, such as the European Union (EU), and the third typ...

  • Free Trade Policies Need
    718 words
    In an economic age in which speedy transactions of imports and exports are essential, is free trade a necessity for aiding worldwide economic development? At least John F. Kennedy thought so, he being the initiator of removing tariffs and other limitations on U.S. imports.

Even today, the United Sta...
  • Effect Of Free Trade And Tariffs
    1,870 words
    Historians of the 19th century have traditionally linked economic growth with a move to free trade.

Typically this British characteristic has been compared to the free trading stance of France. The supposedly higher levels of protection in France have been linked, often in a post hoc ergo proper fashion, to its economic retardation. The debate on the relative economic...

  • Free Trade Vs Protectionism Trade Barriers
    2,736 words
    Free Trade vs. Protectionism The argument for so-called protectionism (called "fair trade" by some) may at first sound appealing. Supporters of protectionist laws claim that keeping out foreign goods will save jobs, giving ailing domestic industries a chance to recover and prosper, and reduce the trade deficits. Are these claims valid? Classical liberal philosopher John Stuart Mill observed in the last century that "Trade barriers are chiefly injurious to the countries imposing them". This state...

  • Development Of Free Trade
