I drive a 2008 Mazda 3, Mazda is a foreign automaker from Japan with the United States holding a 2.1% stockholder stake.  As of 2014 the Mazda 3 is not made in Japan but rather Mexico. I do not have any friends or family that I am aware of that works for an export industry, but my Mother-In-Law and my Father work for foreign-owned firms, my mother-in-law works for Swiss Re, with their headquarters based out of Switzerland and my father works for Farmers Insurance which is owned by the foreign company Zurich which is also headquartered out of Switzerland. Under what conditions do people advocate for trade restrictions?1.Domestic Employment - One of the most common reasons for trade barriers is to protect domestic employment. Foreign imports provide competition with domestic production. To the extent that domestic consumers purchase imports rather than domestic production, domestic production declines and so too does domestic employment. 2.Low Foreign Wages - Those who promote barriers to foreign trade often contend that other countries in the foreign sectorgain a comparative advantagedue to low wages paid to their workers.
