  3. 3. Trade Barriers •EQ: What are characteristics of the three types of economic trade barriers? •How are they present in Europe?
  4. 4. International Trade Involves the exchange of goods or services between countries This is described in terms of – Exports: the goods and services sold to other countries – Imports: the goods or services bought from other countries
  5. 5. Free Trade Vs. Trade Barriers – Free Trade: Nothing hinders or gets in the way from two nations trading with each other. – Trade Barriers: Trade is difficult because things get in the way. There are costs and benefits related to free trade as well as trade barriers.
  6. 6. Physical Trade Barriers Geographic barriers can slow down trade between nations by making it harder and more expensive to move goods from place to place EX) Swiss Alps – to allow goods to move through Switzerland more quickly, the government is building tunnels through the mountains
  7. 7. 3 Economic Trade Barriers The most common trade restrictions are: 1. tariffs—taxes on imported goods 2. Quotas —limits on the quantity of goods that are imported 3. embargoes-- a complete ban on trading between countries
  8. 8. What is a Tariff? A tariff is a tax put on goods imported from other countries The effect of a tariff is to raise the price of the imported product – It makes imported goods more expensive so that people are more likely to purchase products produced in the home country
  9. 9. Tariffs in Europe When countries outside of European Union want to sell their goods in the EU, they must pay tariffs – This makes the non-EU products more expensive than the products made by EU members • Which would you buy? EX) If a US company wants to export fruit to a country in the EU, the US company must pay a tariff (makes US fruit more expensive)
  10. 10. Quotas A quota is a limit on the amount of goods that can be imported from another country Putting a quota on a good creates a shortage, which causes the price of the good to rise. – Consumers are less likely to buy this good because it’s now more expensive than the good produced in the home country. – Quotas encourage people to buy domestic products, rather than foreign goods (boosts country’s economy)
  11. 11. Quotas in Europe The EU places a quota on the amount of steel that can be imported from certain countries – The effect is similar to a tariff, because it makes steel from those countries harder to get, and more expensive – Helps steel producers within EU sell more steel
  12. 12. Embargos Government orders a complete ban on trade with another country The embargo is the harshest type of trade barrier and is usually enacted for political purposes to hurt a country economically and thus undermine the political leaders in charge.
  13. 13. Embargoes in Europe Recently, EU began placing embargoes on the sale of certain weapons and other technologies to Iran – This was done because the countries of the EU suspected Iran was trying to build a nuclear bomb EU countries hope that the embargo will make it difficult for Iran to build this type of weapon
