Government Intervention

- Introduction Arguments for government intervention in international trade take two paths: political and economic (Hill 2011, p205). Political intervention is concerned with protection of certain groups within the nation. These groups are usually the producers who have a lot to gain at the expense of consumers. On the other hand, economic arguments for intervention are concerned with increasing the wealth of the nation to the benefit of all i.e. producers and consumers.
