Free Trade is Part of Freedom

By Grant Davies

I maintain that I have the right, as a human being, to make economic (or other) arrangements with any other human being on this planet without violent or coercive interference of third parties, whether individuals, or groups of individuals. Those groups would typically be governments, trade unions, or other trade associations.

The only legitimate restriction on that right is that I do not engage in behavior that infringes on the equal right of other human beings to do likewise. Any interference with that right is illegitimate, whether "legal" or otherwise.

"Free Trade" is a basic human right.
