I choose this article because everytime I look at where my everyday items are made I rarely see USA. Well why is Globalization has made it possible for Americans to receive items from China to Africa. Globalization has impacted trade in several ways. It eliminated trade barriers and reduces others. One barrier is a tariff on imported goods. A tariff is a tax on imported goods so they're more expensive then goods made in that country. Countries use this tariff to promote keeping business within the country. With increased interdependence among nations, globalization has demanded increased liberalization of markets, the dismantling of almost all trade barriers (Lee, 2005; Czinkota and Ronkainen, 2007). With all of this trading and services countries are creating new jobs for each other and promoting flexibility. Countries are become more independent from the increasing International trade. World Bank, Internation Monetary Fund (IMF) and General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) created the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 1995. Which played a huge role in promoting free trade.
