Discussion Thread 6.1 Free Trade versus Fair Trade Policy Debate Q & A ( Due Feb 23, 2020)
Q1: The United States has benefited greatly from a “Free Trade” policy since it was adopted in 1944.

As part of its new “Fair Trade” policy, the Trump administration has proposed to increase US import tariffs on imported steel and aluminum to 20 percent. It has also proposed 20 percent tariffs on $1.5 Billion worth of products from China. The nation states affected by this tariff proposal immediately declared the new tariff as illegal and promised to retaliate.
