At The Stream, Anne Bradley writes about the freedom that free trade brings. Why does free trade matter?
- We live in a world of scarcity: we have unlimited wants and limited means (resources) to satisfy those wants.
- As individuals, we aren’t good at producing everything we need to survive. We are limited in our talents and opportunities.
- We flourish when we are free to trade the things we are better at producing for the things we are not as good at producing.
