Today, countries are in economic competition, does this further growth? The increased economic activity of earth and big companies threatened to end the world’s eco systems. The answer my friends is more protectionism and self sufficiency- this reducing the use of global resources. One would only consume what he or she produce, internalizing cost. This would make regulation much easier, and the market would reflect the cost of environmental degradation.
The General Agreement of Trade and Tariffs suggests that trade supersedes the importance of the environment. Why must WE surrender our sovereignty to FREE TRADE?!
