Why I support free trade

There's been a lot of talk recently about the drawbacks of globalization and eeevil multinational corporation GREED $$$ OPPRESSION REPUBLICA... er, sorry, lost my train of thought there...

Anyway, I've never had it satisfactorily explained to me exactly how free trade is going to hurt the poor. And Steven den Beste brings up a lot of good points that I've often thought deserved mention; like the fact that farm subsidies are less about saving the family farm and more about corporate welfare; like the fact that the United States and the European Union have screwed over third world agriculture by instituting high tariffs and other protectionist measures; and let alone the fact that I believe Western nations have a responsibility to use their power in the cause of social justice and freedom, the fact that the better off the rest of the world is, the more safe we are from terrorism. If nothing else, we should be helping others out of purely selfish interest.

I don't always agree with den Beste, especially on matters pertaining to religion and philosophy (though he's a brilliant thinker and always is thought-provoking). And I've not done a huge amount of reading on global economic issues. But as far as I can see, he hits the nail on the head with his post.
