5.05 Should Free Trade Be A Goal?
Amanda-Kay Walther
First Image Q&A's
1. What is the issue discussed in the visual media item you chose?
- Free Trade Negotiations
2. What is the creator’s viewpoint on the issue? What details in the resource support the author’s claim?
- The creator of the cartoon believes that all negotiations on free trade are in the United States favor. This is seen because in the cartoon, the U.S. dollar is winning against the Euro.
3. Does this viewpoint reflect a commitment to free trade or to protectionism?
- Protectionism because while negotiations do try to expand free trade, the U.S., in this image, is not trying to protect the other countries from any negative consequences.
4. Do you agree or disagree with the viewpoint of the item you chose? Why or why not?
- I disagree with the image because I believe that negotiations should benefit both or all parties, not just one or the other.
Second Image Q&A's
1. What is the issue discussed in the visual media item you chose?
- Trade Barriers
2. What is the creator’s viewpoint on the issue? What details in the resource support the author’s claim?
- The creator of this image believes that there shouldn't be any barriers on trade shown through Uncle Sam's statement and that his box of chocolates says "free trade pact".
3. Does this viewpoint reflect a commitment to free trade or to protectionism?
- Free trade because it is suggesting to expand free trade while benefiting both parties without any negative consequences.
4. Do you agree or disagree with the viewpoint of the item you chose? Why or why not?
- I do agree with this image because I do not believe that there should be any barriers on trade if there isn't going to be any consequences from the trade.
Reflection Questions
1. What are two benefits and two costs of free trade?
- Benefits: 1. Economic growth is promoted and 2. Democracy may expand.
-Costs: 1. Domestic industry is threatened and 2. Some won't play fair.
2. What is protectionism and why would a country base trade policy on it? Explain at least two reasons.
- Protectionism is used by countries when they think their industries are being damaged by unfair competition from foreign industries. Countries would base trade policy on it because 1. it will help grow a strong new industry and 2. it would help create jobs temporarily.
