    Because it makes it easier for the rich to get richer and the poor to get poorer. How are the middle and lower class supposed to compete with the 'slave' labor in China? Hello free trade, good-bye middle class.

    We should have free trade because everyone benefits from voluntary trade. The sellers benefit and the buyers benefit becaue buyers have more choice and sellers have more competition, therefore, sellers would have to produce better product in order to get people's business.
