Why do nations trade? Countries engage in international trade based on the logical saying of “no man is an island”. Countries trade to benefit from interacting with other countries. Countries in isolation have to contend with being self-sufficient and having a lesser variety of goods. With international exchanges of goods and services, countries get to enjoy a wider variety of goods that may offer better quality. Besides that, the key reason for international trade is that by trading goods, countries can afford to specialize in producing only some items that they’re relatively better at producing. Trade means that each country does not need to produce everything, but just focuses its scarce resources on what it produces more efficiently or…

As everyday consumers, the nation has lost sight of the importance that international trade has on every day lives. Our nation has become so accustomed to having imports, which can be defined as goods and services that are produced abroad and sold domestically, which in this case would refer to such as electronics, automobiles, and other textiles such as fabric, at our daily reach that if not for international trade, would become unavailable to us.

International trade and the impact it has on the United States is seemingly always argued about. Politicians, corporations, and people in general all try to argue whether trade has a positive or negative impact on the United States.
