I'm honextly ocnfused here. Perhaps someone can help me figure it out?
How many people does it require before free trade is a bad idea?
If we're talking about a single person...just you as a twenty-year-old kid without a family...is trade good?
If we're talking about a family...parents + kids 4-12 people....is trade good?
A village of 100 folks?
A town of 10,000?
A city of 1 Million?
A state of 1 Million?
A city of 10 Million?
A state of 10 Million?
A small country of 10 Million?
I don't understand the cutoff when someone thinks it's a good idea. I REALLY don't understand how ANYONE can think that protectionism is a good choice for a small country like Belgium, Singapore, or Hong Kong...but not a medium-sized state like Illinois, or a large city like Los Angeles.
