Young Voices Advocates Published on Huffington Post Germany Writing About Free Trade

Young Voices Advocate Yael Ossowski and Director Fred Roeder were published by Huffington Post Germany writing about the positive effects a free trade agreement between Canada and the European Union will have for consumers on both sides of the Atlantic.

Any kind of relaxation of import tariffs and increase of import quotas should be welcomed since those allow more choice for consumers. At the same time it is important to stress out that those trade negotiations that last for years, have an uncertain outcome, and result in merely increasing import quotas.

EU trade policy makers could go even further by unilaterally liberalizing trade and thus empowering producers of goods and services from allover the world to export to the EU. This would allow the 500 million customers living in the EU to choose from a larger variety of goods at less cost and thus boost their purchase power – That would be a true stimulus package at zero cost.

Young Voices Advocate Axel Kaiser published by the PanAm Post

Young Voices Advocate Axel Kaiser‘s Forbes piece has been republished in The PanAm Post.

In his opinion piece ‘Is This The End Of The Chilean Economic Miracle?‘ Axel writes about the upcoming elections in Chile and the potential threat to Chile’s current economic system and prosperity:

As a result of this free market revolution, the Chilean economy boomed. In the last 35 years poverty has fallen from 50 percent to 11 percent, per-capita income has increased from 4.000 dollars to almost 20.000 dollars and inflation was reduced from over 250 percent per year to less than 7 percent per year. This remarkable record has been known as Chile’s ‘economic miracle’.

Key to the entire free-market transformation were the political institutions established in the Constitution of 1980, which despite several reforms in the last two decades continues to be the highest law of the country. Like the American Constitution, the Constitution of 1980 established a limited democracy. Its central aim was to secure economic liberty and private property so that the country would not fall prey again to collectivist tendencies that could threaten to destroy both the economy and the democratic institutions.
