The importance of trade continues to be a debated topic because the gains are not always quantifiable by those involved. Some would argue that due to a significant difference in wages and regulations, free trade is not always fair trade and that free trade agreements are used by companies to simply chase lower wages and fewer regulations. In the United States, this has been an ongoing debate in regard to both the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the normalized trade relationship with China. Take some time to read the following articles before beginning your post:

Based on what you have read, please address the following questions:

  • Which do you feel is a better approach, free or fair trade, and why? 
  • Given the concept of comparative advantage, should we even be discussing free versus fair trade?
