In different historical stages of the development of international trade, there are different trade protectionism theory and policy. Since 1995 WTO operation, rational trade protectionism began to prevail.
Follow the rational logic of self-interest maximization, rational trade protectionism is the pursuit of maximizing the benefits and minimizing the loss.
