  7. Unconstrained free trade vs free trade with subsidies. Can there really be unconstrained trade without subsidies?

    The politicians and leaders talk about free trade on one side but on the other support initiatives to protect national products from foreign products via tariffs.

    Can there really be a free and unconstrained trade system?

    If so, what might it look like.

    If not, what does that look like visually?

  11. What about trading people

    Import of people no buying and selling people like the bad old days.But immigration. I believe US has a great advantage over countries as far as bringing new people into the US. One the US is someplace that people want to go to. And for the most part people can get here. Unlike Japan which is a dying country.

  12. What happens to the US economy when other countries catch up on specialization and innovation?

    The course assumes trade for unlike goods. Yet electronics is an integrated industry. What happens as more countries develop the innovation capacity in electronics and their economies begin to look more like the US's? What happens to our comparative advantage and trading position?
