Example for Extempore:
International trade barriers
Patterns of International trade & gains from trade were determined by Trade Theory or 'Mercantilism' prevalent in 17th & 18th centuries. In Mercantilism, an economy tried to augment its wealth by restricting and reducing imports while encouraging exports.
The barriers to International Trade are generally divided into Tariff Barriers and Non-Tariff Barriers (TBs & NTBs). Regional Integration Agreements (RIA) were formed mainly to reduce trade barriers between member nations. The formation of subsequent RIAs, i.e. from "Free Trade" to "Customs Union (e.g. SAARC)" to "Common Market" to "Economic/Political Union (e.g. European Union)" went on reducing trade barriers with members and outside nations.
