world trade organization - Throughout the years, there has been a constant controversy over whether the World Trade Organization should enforce global free trade. The primary idea is to establish in which all are happy. Although there are many advocates for trade liberalization, as well as many who oppose. I believe free trade may be advantageous for both large and small-industrialized countries, but it does not favor the smaller developing countries needs primarily. If the World Trade Organization eliminates tariffs and quotas, it could create more jobs, which could result in more wealth or new wealth for the country because of increased demand and increased trade of a product(s) that a country produces....   [tags: essays research papers] 646 words
