    Free Trade is the complete contrary of protectionism and therefore a policy free of governmental trade barriers or even trade without governmental interference. There are several free trade agreements in the world, which mostly which mostly include trading goods without taxes or tariffs as well as free access to markets and market information.   Introduction This year's presidential campaign has raised once again the issue of free trade versus protectionism, with protectionists arguing that reducing foreign imports protects American jobs.

    No idle rhetoric, Reagan made a concrete step toward the realization of this vision by signing a free trade agreement with Canada in that was . The WTO argues that in opposition to free trade, protectionism doesn’t help promoting economic expansion. Free trade policies, it is argued by the WTO and major developed countries, promote growth. The free trade model is used by the WTO to rescue developing countries and help them develop economically more efficiently.
