||With the idea of liberalizing trade in the 80's the trade reform process based on tariffs, labor regimes and changes in the financial system to have a better distribution of income that would result from transactions of free trade is initiated. The countries are looking to establish free trade ways to resolve economic and political conflicts, the way is using free trade agreements between countries and try to expand globally achieving greater competitiveness, flow of money in the economy and thus improve the quality of life of its inhabit. This is the reason that even developed countries implement free trade agreements between them trying to encourage countries in developing celebrating treated similar trade with the premise that the tariff and barriers negotiation will not be equal, sometimes countries via development do not measure their ability to respond to market and technologically strong volume production. It is clear that the global economy has advanced and the countries through economic and political tools try to make alliances to facilitate trade in goods and services. One of the most important elements to analyze is to know if the free trade agreements are good for economy and the well being of the citizens of the countries but specially in the decreasing of power.
