Summary
The recent negotiations of free trade agreements among heterogeneous countries, such as the NAFTA, as well as the debate over the pros and cons of the enlargement of the European Union eastward (and eventually southward), inflamed the controversy between the partisan of protectionism and the supporters of free trade. Most of the political discussion on this issue is centered on the effects of "globalization" (whatever this term exactly means) on the labor market. In the US, labor organizations opposed the NAFTA on the basis that it would have caused a fall in wages, and fostered inequality and poverty;1 in Europe, the mass of jobless blames "globalization" as the main cause of their misfortune. The opposition to free trade on the basis of its negative impact on workers' welfare is not new. The way in which Hicks describes the reaction to free trade in the years of the Great Depression has indeed a flavor of actuality: "The main thing which caused so much liberal opinion in England to loose its faith in free trade was the helplessness of the older liberalism in the face of massive unemployment, and the possibility of using import restriction as an element in an active program fighting unemployment".2
