It becomes clear that free movement goods across national borders has become common in some countries. However, it becomes controversial because this act may cause damage to local industries. Many local industries have many issues like lack of capital, low standard products, and unskilled worker. If other countries send goods which are higher quality and cheaper the local industries will hard to compete and collapse. If the government do not calculate the advantages and drawbacks carefully the free trade will trigger economic fell.
In the other hand, the free trade also has several advantages if local industries are able to send local products to other countries. For example, the big local industries will send goods to other countries with just a little cost and have bigger merit. Otherwise, if a country decided to make a free trade among other countries surely because this act has several advantages than disadvantages for the home country. A free trade generally considered will increase economic growth and as a solution to overcome rarity of general good which caused inflation.
In my opinion, I agree if the free trade occurred because it is hard to increase economic growth if government always give much protection toward local industry. For example, many local industries never think their unique product will have a customer from other countries, and the free trade will enforce them to think in the bigger way. The free trade will make local industries more competitive and force them to improve their advantage. The free trade also allows local industries to think creatively.
In conclusions, I would agree that the advantages of free trade to other countries overweight the disadvantages.
