They are simply forecasting tools, and lik ...

    NBA Lockout The National Basketball Players Association lockout greatly affected the United States economy.

Proponents of protectionism believe in concentrating on the welfare of the domestic economy by limiting the open-market policy of the United States. However, what effects does this policy have for the international market and the other respective countries in this market? The question is not as complex as it may seem.
