Barry Reeves of Sir George Monoux College reviews the concerns if there is a retreat from the principle of global free trade.

 

Summary of Key Points:

  • Protectionism is rising through fears of competition from China and India and others.
  • The interests of a few powerful G8 industries threaten the welfare of consumers in the developed world and maintain poverty in the poorest countries.
  • Protectionism may threaten a world economic slowdown or depression via multiplier effects and financial crisis.
  • The limited and temporary cases for protectionism are managed decline of old sectors in the industrial countries and managed development of comparative advantage through protecting selective infant industries in developing countries.
  • We need a strong WTO, stronger in its policing role and in reflecting the interests of the developing world.
  • The dangers of protectionism are not just textbook fears, but represent peoples’ lives and chances of escaping poverty.
