The most compelling reason to support free trade is that society as a whole benefits from it. Free trade improves people's living standards because it allows them to consume higher quality goods at less expensive prices. Trade between nations is the same as trade between people.
Likewise, how does free trade maximize world welfare? Essentially, free trade enables lower prices for consumers, increased exports, benefits from economies of scale and a greater choice of goods. This explains that by specialising in goods where countries have a lower opportunity cost, there can be an increase in economic welfare for all countries.

Trade is fair when it is free. Trade is fair when it doesn't involve government's subsidies, crony capitalism, or an export-import bank. Trade is fair when it is not hindered by tariffs, quotas, barriers, sanctions, or dumping rules.

Free trade is meant to eliminate unfair barriers to global commerce and raise the economy in developed and developing nations alike. But free trade can – and has – produced many negative effects, in particular deplorable working conditions, job loss, economic damage to some countries, and environmental damage globally.
