It is naive to believe that laissez-faire free trade can ensure all parties can maintain a minimal standard of living.
Only a loser would be against fair trade. Because they support neocolonialism. Fair Trade should have been made law a long time ago, therefore when the law is not followed they should be penalized.
Globally, it is more beneficial than harmful.
Free trade lets the market decide which is better, not some chuckleheaded politician.
