Is Free Trade Fair?

Is free-trade fair? Why or why not?
In today’s world, the discipline of international economy deals mostly with fair distribution of collective income. At this point, we should clarify concepts and terms and make specific and clear definitions of those. For instance, what does exactly the word fair mean to you? On the other hand, there are several approaches to this collective goods problem. We should emphasize them in the most accurate way, and then decide whether free trade goes hand-in-hand with fair trade. As far as I could judge all of the things I know about this issue, I can simply say that freedom of trade does not bring about fairness to trade, and also for the society as a whole.

These kind of organizations also admit that they remove “most of the barriers to trade”, but not all of them. Laissez-faire advocates put their thoughts straight: International trade without the interference of tariffs, subsidies, and price controls is by far the most efficient way of matching global supply to demand while...
