Protectionism is the economic policy of restraining trade between states, through methods such as tariffs on imported goods, restrictive quotas, and a variety of other restrictive government regulations designed to discourage imports, and prevent foreign take-over of local markets and companies. This policy is closely aligned with anti-globalization, and contrasts with free trade, where government barriers to trade are kept to a minimum. The term is mostly used in the context of economics, where protectionism refers to policies or doctrines which "protect" businesses and workers within a country by restricting or regulating trade with foreign nations. This book explores topics in relation to protectionism such as: collecting antidumping and countervailing duties, the impacts and implications for the U.S. in free trade agreements, trade remedy legislation, the impact of export restraints on rising grain prices and others.
