Critics argue that the World Trade Organization (WTO) single-mindedly promotes trade at the expense of the environment. Therefore, trade â€“ or more broadly, globalization â€“ needs to slow down.
For your initial post in the discussion forum, review information from Chapter 8 in the textbook and use your personal judgment to answer the following questions:
- What is your view on the relationship between trade and the environment?
- Can we encourage trade and, at the same time, protect the environment? How?
- Respond to at least two of your peers by respectfully critiquing their statement. Do you agree with their positions on trade and the environment? If not, do you find any of their supporting evidence persuasive? If you agree with their position, can you suggest any additional examples to offer further support?
