Discussion Starter

Here's an interesting item to use to kick-start discussion about trade. The Adam Smith Institute has a bracelet supporting free trade. (Item no longer available on web site.) It touts "I buy goods from poorer countries."

I suspect it would create an interesting back and forth with many students. (Are the people in those countries better/worse off producing goods for the world market? What is the impact on people in this country who could produce the goods? What do we learn from comparative advantage?)

Your comments and experiences are welcome.
