Trading across the world has shown to be helpful and unhelpful in multiple ways throughout history, trading provokes innovation and peace deals between countries and nations. As well as ensuring that countries gain resources that they cannot easily produce on their own. The downside of trading is the loss of jobs in countries, since importing and exporting certain materials can make a job held by someone obsolete, due to the cheap and more efficient use of importing and exporting materials and resources. An example of someone losing their job due to trading is the manufacturing of corn in the United States, since farmers are forced to sell their produce at market price, while other companies that have much larger and faster producing farms can sell larger quantities of the farmers product for the same amount as the farmer, and therefore making the farmer’s produce unsellable since the farmer is competing against large scale companies. Overall however, free trade will likely benefit the world, since products will be traveling all around the globe invoking new ideas and deals between nations and countries.
The Trans Pacific Partnership will likely start a new era of the world, where countries who have been enemies will now instead begin trading and developing, as well as creating treaties of peace as they trade, in the effort to avoid losing a trading partnership. What should be clearly and effectively stated in the Trans Pacific Partnership is that countries should not put millions out of jobs, and instead attempt to relocate people or at least ensure that people do not lose their jobs by making compromises with market pricing, therefore by changing market prices for companies that aren’t big enough to compete against other larger companies the smaller companies will be able to stay and not go out of business. The Trans Pacific Partnership should allow countries to influence other countries economies through the use of dependencies through trading, since dependencies create peace treaties between countries for the reason that a country that is dependant on another country will not attack the country they are dependant on, therefore creating peace between two countries, and if the entire world were dependant on eachother, then the world would be at peace for the first time in history. Another thing that the Trans Pacific Partnership should incorporate and make clear is that trading should and has to be eco-friendly. Since the environment is a controversial topic, in which millions of people want the world to be more friendly to the environment, and if the Trans Pacific Partnership is not friendly to the environment, then it will be argued against more than it already is currently.
Throughout history, people can easily see the importance of trading among nations and countries. If the Trans Pacific Partnership works out, then trading will be completely changed, and the global economy will greatly benefit due to the partnership. If the partnership does not pass, then millions will likely keep their jobs, but the global economy will continue to suffer. If the Trans Pacific Partnership passes, then the global economy will have a huge charge in innovation and profit. Overall however, the Trans Pacific Partnership if passed, will greatly benefit the world, not only will it open up jobs for people, but it will make the economy of countries exceed greatly. If the Trans Pacific Partnership does not pass, then people will keep their jobs and the economy will continue to lower and crumble. Therefore the Trans Pacific Partnership should be passed, and there has to be certain rules and regulations that ensure the safety of the environment, and the safety of people's jobs through compromises with the market price.
