Are you serious???? You seriously think that America is proactive on free-trade and free-markets? That is one of the most ridiculous sugestions ever. America is anything but proactice, in fact they're the opposite - proctectionist. Both America and the EU are the worst at providing access to foreign markets. Just look and the agriculturial subsidies that the US provides its farmers, its as at the highest amount the WTO will allow. Whereas, Australia and New Zealand provide their farmers no subsidies and are actively providing access to countries, especially the developing countries. And there has been no negative effect; farmers had to become more effecient and therefore more productive. Trade has risen since subsidies were cut. More than half of Australia's trade is with developing countries.
