In terms of efficiency, free trade thus means that every state should play to maximise their specialisation of production and to minimise doing less efficient tasks (Kindleberger, 1995). Liberals believe that specialisation will improve the welfare of an individual country and that of the world as a whole if countries specialise in one task according to their comparative advantage (O’Brien and Williams, 2013). Moreover, nation states can expand their businesses with foreign direct investments, and this leads to more dynamic business style. Free trade opens up a door to the world for every single state, and domestic companies can export and import their commodities without paying extra tariffs or tax. Eliminating trade barriers creates a field which people can play a role internationally to compete one another in order to improve national as well as international economy (Balaam, and Dillman, 2011b).
"Macroeconomics is a branch of economics that deals with the performance, structure, and behavior of a national economy as a whole. Macroeconomists seek to understand the determinants of aggregate trends in an economy with particular focus on national income, unemployment, inflation, investment, and international trade" (Wikipedia, 2007). Government tends to use a combination of both monetary and fiscal options when setting policies that deal with the Macroeconomic. According to McConnell & Brue (2004), governments make adjustments through policy changes which they hope will succeed in stabilizing the economy. Governments believe that the success of these adjustments is necessary to maintain stability and continue growth.

“When there is a significant domestic market for a good, protection of this market raises the profits of the domestic firm” (Krugman, 1987, p.136) and is the key reason that a strategic trade policy is put into place. The root idea of this type of policy is to increase wealth or create a benefit, which is the same reason for pursuing any kind of business, including trade.

It is very important keep the balance between national industries and imports, because if there are too many imports in the country, there will be some problem in hiring because the national industries would be difficult to compete with cheap import products.
Many economists have begun advocating major government intervention in order to balance out today’s economy. Our generation has witnessed Keynes theories be put to use in the U.S. and around the world. Some of these include the government bailing out major companies, and monetary stimulus to households. Keynes created the Aggregate Expenditure Model in order to achieve equilibrium in the economy and prevent recessions or depression from occurring. The Keynesian Aggregate Expenditure Model is a graphical model used to analyze “the basic components of Keynesian economics and to identify Keynesian Equilibrium as the intersection of the aggregate expenditures... ... middle of paper ... ...d States, Congress must first concur whenever changes in spending and taxes occur.
Therefore, throughout this work the goal is to explain how the following three economic principles, people face trade offs, trade can make everyone better off, and governments can improve market outcomes relate to the petroleum boom in the United States. Once the economic principles are explained defining and identifying Gross Domestic Product (GDP), supply and demand, and Consumer Price Index (CPI) will be the focus, so an educated discussion about the meaning the indices have and how they relate to the article can be accomplished. After defining, explaining, and discussing the relationship an appropriate evaluation and forecast will be made. People Face Trade Offs According the Mankiw, (2012), trade offs in society has to do with efficiency and equality, but when government policy intervenes these two clash with one another (p. 5). “The Petrostate of America” brings up the point that restrictions are not allowing our economy to benefit from one of its most prolific natural resources in the most efficient and equal way throughout socie... ... middle of paper ... ...other countries to balance the power of bullying countries such as Russia.
The main purpose of the government’s existence is to provide economic stability for the country to determine future economic prospects. One’s nation should have a stable economic to show prosperity in business, thorough and maintainable finances and good cohesion. Studies have shown that many developing countries such as Singapore are experiencing inflation problems which is affecting economic growth. As economic growth is measured by the variations of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), it is essential to understand the causes of inflation and unemployment to further understand the variations such as recession and expansion. Several methodology such as the Aggregate Supply (AS) and Aggregate Demand (AD) model and Phillips Curve approach affects
Europe was rebuilt and caught up with the US, as did Japan. GATT achieved substantial reduction in tariffs through many round of negotiations. Personal wealth and the general well-being of the society increase as the results of free-trade, particularly in manufacturing. Competition among firms also reduces costs of products and increase consumption. Thus by reducing tariffs, GATT reinforce the liberal idea of free markets and enhance personal wealth substantially.
(Rugmann and Collinson). Arguments for free trade Trading Barriers If nations adopted a free trading policy the total cost of tariffs, duty on imports, would be reduced; resulting in a cost efficient method of international trade. Alongside specialising in an economic activity within one nation, a reallocation of resources for more efficient nations allows trade to be fair and enhance the quality of resources. The reduction of trade barriers enables the local prices of goods to reduce too, which will eventually lead to an enhancement in the economical welfare situation of nations by reducing the limitations of new entrants into the markets. The removal of barriers would mean a free and fair opportunity for all nations to gain impartial access into any market benefitting them with a fair chance in competition.
