International trade affects the price and availability of practically everything we buy. It also plays a role in many other domains, including jobs, the environment and the fight against poverty. Trade, in turn, is affected by a host of factors ranging from natural resources to fashion.
OECD Insights: International Trade argues that prosperity has rarely, if ever, been achieved or sustained without trade. Trade alone, however, is not enough. Policies targeting employment, education, health and other issues are needed to promote well-being and tackle the challenges of a globalised economy.
