If you mean the idea of free trade, it originated for the first time in the book of Adam Smith - The Wealth of Nations, in 1786 if I'm not wrong.
However, a clearer vision of world trade as a win-win game was given later by David Ricardo, who explained well how the all nations involved in trade benefit from it.

I'm sure this has been lost in history. It may not have been written down as a concise idea, but I'm sure even the cavemen had a notion of it when one caveman traded a piece of food for a sharpened stick or bone knife, etc. Both knew they were benefiting by trading something they didn't need very much, for something they needed more.
