ABSTRACT
This article presents a discussion of the effectiveness of international trade negotiations, or free trade. The world must reduce the barriers to trade in order to return the economic growth and prosperity of all countries. Yet free trade does not truly exist. Despite apparent unanimity about the goal of free trade, managed trade is the rule and mercantilism has thrived and adapted to the economic world. Mercantilism, as used by the author, is a term that historically was applied to the trading practices of European countries centuries ago.
