This paper gives an in-depth analysis of the benefits and drawbacks of international trade for developing countries. First, the paper examines the benefits of globalization and free-trade for developing nations, including the increase in annual income for the country which results in a decline in poverty. On the other hand, it also considers the drawbacks of international trade, such as a lack of experience for third world nations in negotiating economic treaties and therefore giving concessions that are not in their best interest. This unequal exchange between industrial countries and developing countries is further considered in light of its economic costs. The paper concludes by highlighting the point that participating in the global market does help Third World countries, however those Third World countries need to develop the sophistication regarding international trade negotiations to be sure they get a fair deal.
From the Paper:"When there are "unequal exchanges" between industrial countries and developing countries there are likely to be two economic costs paid: one, a lower degree of access to foreign markets is likely, hampering globalization efforts for the developing; and two, by experiencing a "weakening of their bargaining power" through giving too many concessions to the more experienced, more powerful industrial countries, developing countries will pay a cost both in lost revenue potential and in public perceptions of their stability in the market."
