Reichsburg Free Trade Agreement

Postby Allanea » Fri Oct 27, 2017 3:28 am

Reichsburg Free Trade Agreement


Whereas, the maintenance of free international trade ha[s been known for centuries, by the concession of economists of all political stripes, to be of economic benefit to all;

Whereas, acts of protectionism are a negative-sum, economically harmful, process;

Whereas, industries unable to remain competitive often create lobbying campaigns on false claims of public benefit to remain subsidized by the taxpayer,

Whereas the signatories are desirous of promoting the welfare of sapient-kind;

The Undersigned thereafter promote this agreement, as a first step to free global trade;

1. No Signatory Nation shall level punitive tariffs or taxes against products imported by another Signatory Nation. This statement shall not include such things as National Sales Taxes except where those taxes are individually leveled against products imported by a Signatory Nation.

2. No Signatory Nation shall prohibit the imports of products that can be lawfully made and sold by commercial enterprises within that nations, as long as they are bought and sold under the same legal restrictions as similar products made within the Nation;

3. Any member of the world community can become a signatory unilaterally, except states which practice genocide, democide, chattel slavery, serfdom or forced labor;

4. Signatory Nations who do not hold to either of the above three statements shall be removed as Signatories. Such a Signatory may not be reinstated without making changes in their policy to comply, and the approval of the Free Kingdom of Allanea.

5. This Agreement shall not be subject to change. It is not seen as an Evolving Document rather as a Static Agreement.

6. Any Nation, excepting those covered under Sections 3-4, may at any time become a Signatory to this Agreement.


Signed,

Alexander Blaken-Kazansky, King of Allanea

Official Clarification from the Free Kingdom Ministry of Foreign Affairs


Opponents of the Agreement may notice that it does not cover every possible eventuality, nor does it cover various ‘surreptitious’ means by which opponents of free trade may attempt to ‘cheat’ the agreement. This is not a ‘mistake’ by the Free Kingdom government, but a deliberate choice. We believe that it is impossible to ‘cheat’ at trade, and states which attempt to do so are only harming their own citizens. We do not believe we should bar our borders to foreign goods merely because someone in a foreign country ‘subsidizes’ their products or whatever such foolishness. If hey subsidize their products, they are merely giving Allaneans cheaper goods at the expense of their taxpayer. Bring it, we say.

Moreover, history shows that attempting to create elaborate free-trade agreements, tens of thousands of pages long, makes the agreements unpopular and undesirable to the public, and often ends in their manipulation by protectionists, or rejection by a nation that disagreed with some foolish provision on Page 5533 of a 10,000-page document. As such, we offer the world an opportunity to simplify trade processes, make money, and improve economic growth, by signing on to a simple agreement.

That is all. May the Gods bless you all,
And may they forever continue to bless Allanea.


OOC: This thread is an all-tech thread and any nation can sign. However, it shouldn’t be read as binding members to import or export products that cross the techbarrier downwards, i.e. FT products to MT nations.

Hello, we believe that free trade agreements are obsolete when we talk about maintaining a healthy world with opportunities for all nations. Free trade agreements only help to promote the specialization of nations, turning some into producers of technology and manufacturing, and others into mere suppliers of raw materials. Therefore, the FTAs, in addition to being obsolete, are an attack on the right of nations to develop equitably. Greetings.

On behalf of the Democratic Exodian Territories, we ask: Will we have to lower the higher tax on all foreign corporations that we normally impose? The slightly higher tax was to encourage and leave room for native businesses to expand.

We plan to make a decision on signing after our question has been answered, and we are leaning towards signing the agreement.

Thank you in advance.

Official Reply from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs:

While we obviously frown on such shenanigans, they're not, technically speaking, barred by the treaty, which only addresses import tariffs on products and outright import restrictions.
