This is an additional problem in addition to the fall in the volume of trade due to a lower consumer demand and credit problems caused by the financial crisis. In this respect prof. Jeremy j.. Siegel. He noted, that protectionism is rather a threat, not a fact, although it’s a growing threat that must be taken very seriously.

In fact, so far the protectionist sentiment is much weaker than what would be expected in a principle, and that is something that I like, said Professor everyone has in mind the great depression and its huge tariff levels on the other hand, the director-general Pascal Lamy invoked the infamous Smoot-Hawley Act of 1930, which increased tariffs on more than 20,000 products imported by the United States. This Act sparked a trade war which, according to many economists, worsened the depression. Either with tariffs or other measures more sophisticated, now run the risk of rushing us to the slippery terrain of measures and countermeasures. Adds Universia Wharthon, than in the United States, in the Chamber of Deputies, Democrats drafted tough provisions to purchase American products in his economic stimulus bill, though the terms were softened in the Senate at the request of the Obama administration.

According to predictions of the World Bank, trade will fall this year for the first time since World War II, and many ports because they are experiencing double-digit drops. Finally he concludes the article by Universia Wharton who in the opinion of Prof. Meyer, the threat of protectionism is just one of the ingredients of the combination of challenges facing the global economy.
