International Trade Theory

Free Trade: The absence of government-imposed barriers, such as quotas, or duties, that impede the free flow of goods and services between countries

Benefits: Gains from trade when a country specializes in the manufacturing and export of products that have low-opporunity costs and import products that have high-opportunity costs

Weaknesses: Importing products in certain industries from other countries takes away job opportunities for the home country
