This paper discusses the major trade issues related to theories of comparative advantage, outsourcing as well as trade quotas and tariffs. Additionally, this paper reviews the concept of free trade in relation to free trade zones and the World Trade Organization's role in governing international free trade. This paper then examines the role of free trade agreements in international trade.

From the Paper:

"Comparative advantages in certain product categories are established by the constraints under which the product and or services are manufactured or produced. Products that are generally considered to be labor intensive usually provide a comparative advantage to countries where the labor pool is cheap and plentiful; i.e. China and India, while countries that are highly developed and the labor pool is comprised of wage workers who expect and receive higher wages are disadvantaged in such product or service categories. In such cases, the trade off is, according to the theory of comparative advantage, that the emerging markets where cheap and plentiful labor exists offers cost-benefit advantages for companies to locate their production facilities in these markets, and consequently, companies with higher level products or technologies market their products to these emerging economies."
