The world enjoys harmony due to thriving relationships derived from the formation of a global economy, as seen through the interdependence of nations, and free trade. If economies are intertwined with each other through trade, this form of economic interdependence promotes security and stability.

”Free trade policies have created a level of competition in today's open market that engenders continual innovation and leads to better products, better-paying jobs, new markets, and increased savings and investment” (Denise Froning). Though Free trade plays a huge role in the economy today because of what and where it is used.

First introduced in the first part of the nineteenth century by David Ricardo, comparative advantage is when a country can produce a particular good or service at a lower margin and opportunity cost over another country. Specializing in industries where opportunity cost is lower leads to a boost in production and lower costs (Hann, 2011). Free trade works with other processes in the market to move resources and labor where it is most efficient. It allows the whole function to become more productive. This contributes to higher wages, new jobs, and opportunities to invest in other things.
Consumer can benefit in cheaper goods, when presented with two products that offer similar benefits, customers vote with their purchases and decide which product will survive. Customers also determine the ultimate price point for a product, which requires producers to set product prices high enough to make a profit, but not so high that customers will hesitate to make a purchase. Except consumer can benefit in cheaper goods, corporate access to larger markets means that firms may experience higher demand for their products, as well as benefit from economies of scale, which leads to a reduction in average production costs. Providing an incentive for countries to specialize and benefit from the application of the principle of comparative advantage. Globalization enables worldwide access to sources of cheap raw materials, and this enables firms to be cost competitive in their own markets and in overseas markets.
1) Discuss the advantage and disadvantages of free international trade ADVANTAGES Increased Production The reason for exchange is to give access to a more amazing variety of products and services.

Despite the profits made from this technique, it can have some repercussions on the U.S. economy and the environment of nations occupying those factories (Marquis 39; Ahmed 192; Zhang 776). This springs a debate to whether more concern should be held for the outcry of Americans to bring jobs back to the U.S. (Ahmed 192; Stephanie para1) or to the freedoms of the businesses and their right to seek a profit (Salanţă 270). Both sides can agree that outsourcing can be desirable for a business do to the potential profit. It allows goods to be made cheaper, management to run smoother, and money to be made faster (Salanţă 270).
Because this trade is cheaper in another place companies, to save money need to move their business production there and then send it back to the country of origin. “One reason that inexpensive labor is beneficial is that it allows poor nations to produce commodities more cheaply than wealthy nations where labor is expensive.”(David Harvey)This
