Have you ever been in a store or restaurant that advertised selling fair-trade products? Do you wonder about the importance of free trade when trade-restriction policies fill the news? This year’s debate resolution is about fair trade and free trade economics and how their philosophies and policies affect individuals all around the globe.
Before going into specific details of the resolution, it is important to understand the basic framework of the resolution’s wording. This year’s Lincoln-Douglas resolution specifies the context you will be debating within. The wording of the resolution informs us that the main actor in the round is the government and that we are only going to be looking at examples involving direct conflicts between the ideologies of fair and free trade. This article will evaluate the factors of a conflict resolution, importance of a government actor, the meaning behind the ideologies of fair trade and free trade, and how to make a general case for each side of the resolution.
