Title The Big Question: How fair is free trade?
Description
  • Free trade is the theory of trade without restrictions. But that theory is not easily put into practice. Take the billions spent through European Union subsidies to farmers, or the high US import tariffs on foreign steel. "That is not fair", shout critics, "and it's not free trade." The World Trade Organisation exists to ensure countries play by the free trade rules - but who do these rules benefit? The Big Question: is free trade itself actually fair? <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/society/international-development/international-studies/how-fair-free-trade" /> The Big Question team. Across a full year on the BBC World Service, Emma Joseph and The Big Question team explored a range of questions at the heart of modern life.<br />First published on Wed, 01 Dec 2004 as <a href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/society/international-development/international-studies/how-fair-free-trade">The Big Question: How fair is free trade?</a>.
