well, youall year about that new trade aggrement thing they have in the making?
here is a situation:
currently- in your country there is a factory that makes some form of metal (it doesn;t mtter really what it is just that they make something)
now, there is another country that makes that same thing, for cheaper. They ate able to make it cheaper because they are a bid company and they can do whatever they want... the way it is now, your country, would put a tax on the cheaper imported item to make the price equal. that way that countrie's economy doesn't get cheated out by some bigger one and the local companies product is still bought by the countries citizens. (you have to understan that the local company would be producing the item as cheap as possible but because they are smaller, it is still not as cheap as the bigger company can produce it. Also that this company is basically the only thing supporting the countries economy at all. Generally speeking this applies to poor countries)
so with this new trade agreement, it would make it very hard for other countries to tax imported products, tharefore everyone buys the US products instead, thus putting that countries economy to shit, making living conditions worse for it's citizens.
and at the same time, I would prusume, the us would continue to tax goods that are imported here (the whole thing that we are making it hard to do in other countries) becase we are greedy heartless bastards.
well couldn't the people buy things cheaper and then end up being better off, you say? well no because that is just not how it works out. By not suppoering their own countires economy, they themselves start to make even less money than the small amount they happen to make now and the whole thing just goes down the drain.
