Free Trade: a Right

Free Trade is an issue that cannot be emphasized too much.  Jeff Jacoby makes this clear in his Boston Globe article where he defends free trade and concludes:

Free trade isn’t a battle that countries (or states) win or lose. It is a human right - the liberty to engage in voluntary transactions that leave both participants better off. If John wants to sell something that Mary wants to buy, it should make no difference to the lawfulness of their exchange whether they are residents of different neighborhoods, different states, or different nations.

This much is clear - that Free Trade is inseparable from individual human rights.  It also makes good economic sense.
