Ban it because it means governments like the Iran government and Pakistan government and more countries can deal nuclear weapons. You might be thinking that is stereo type but you know it's true

Why would it be banned? It benefits everyone by allowing specialization.

How exactly? Wouldn't it benefit poorer countries the most?

Side: No/In Part

Free trade is essential to economic growth either by comparative or absolute advantage.

It benefits poor countries. China wouldn't be the superpower it is today without the United States.

Side: No/In Part

Poor farmers in Mexico wouldn't like free trade because the U.S. can sell produce to their consumers at a cheaper price. In this sense it "hurts" the poor. It hurts the poor in the same sense that competition hurts the less able by forcing them out of the market.

Restricted trade helps domestic companies (they don't have to compete). Free trade helps domestic consumers (they get less expensive goods).

We should make free international trade the goal. If you have a hard time competing, get innovative.

No! Free trade allows international economic competition and allows other countries to import things they need and can't produce themselves. For example, Taiwan. It doesn't have a ton of natural resources like iron or precious metals, so it trades its electronics for those resources.
