Free Trade Day highlights what the world would be like without tariffs and trade barriers. It also aims to help encourage people to learn about this type of economic thought and its social implications.

History of Free Trade Day

Economics is a complex social science, and its central themes - supply, demand, taxes - are discussed from various angles by commentators. Free Trade Day is one such point in the modern economic debate.

Historically, the Free Trade movement began in the 19th century when trade was a diverse issue in American politics. High taxes began during the Civil War when Northern merchants wanted to protect their trade from Southern competition.

Southern businesses have chosen open trade policies to export cotton. Real free trade didn't begin as a concept until the 1980s with the Free Trade Agreement. Advances toward the idea of ​​free trade came from the reduction of tariffs due to interest in foreign trade and the post-World War II economy.

Free trade has, ever since, been a topic of discussion as the 90s and 2000s rolled around. This has created economic debate over when companies will internationalize their production. Free Trade Day argues in favor of free trade and the re-establishment of free trade and removal of tariff barriers. It supports the idea that lower prices for consumers and growth opportunities for manufacturers follow.

Free Trade Day is intended to help teach people about the trading system and the bigger picture of world markets. Free Trade Day is celebrated every year by encouraging people to buy.
