Free Trade/List:/ListVsFree Trade: List criticised the classic free trade doctrine according to which all countries should concentrate on the production of those goods where they have (comparative) cost advantages. According to List, this overlooks the fact that specialisation in industrial goods would bring long-term strategic economic and political benefits to more developed countries, while depriving the less developed agricultural countries of their long-term development opportunities. The classic demand for free trade thus serves above all to secure the hegemony of the richer countries in the long term. (1)
