It seems like econ people love free trade. All the questions in schweser seem to be pro free trade. Is there anything in economics against free trade?
not that i remember… but some arguments against free trade are total BS, some have a little bit of a point… probably good to know which ones are total cr@p and which are reasonable but still wrong like, “inventory dumping” is total BS, but i think “national defense should be domestic” has some legitimacy although still not a good reason to not have free trade
CFA says unemployment, infant industries, dumping, jobs, culture, and a few others. But all in all, the CFA curriculum says that all these arguments are not valid.
