The paper examines five articles and their fiscal, sovereign, environmental and social perspectives of free trade. The paper is of the opinion that investors are fundamentally concerned with profit and not on developing emerging economies. The paper claims that despite the rhetoric to the contrary, there is little being addressed in terms of socioeconomic issues that negatively affect trade partners.

From the Paper:

"The debate around world trade is a much discussed topic in the news and society at large. In studying the issues as presented in the five articles discussed, it becomes clear that there are a number of perspectives including fiscal, sovereign, environmental, and social. Each perspective has merit; however the perspectives are not autonomous but rather interdependent and there seems to be a divide that exists between those who discuss fiscal issues versus those who discuss social issues."
