There is no right or wrong agreement; each country offers its own contribution to each trade agreement, investment arrangement, and political alliance. When nation-states work together there are benefits that extend beyond the face value of the agreement; each party is socially and politically tied to the agreement and they may strive to continue to ameliorate the relationship as the terms of the agreement come to fruition, develop, and the wants and needs of each respective nation evolve.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
