What is a Free trade agreement?

A “trade agreement” that requires thousands of pages (some 30,000 between WTO-GATT) is NEVER “free trade”.

Free inter-governmental turf borders trade requires one very short paragraph at most.

“All undersigned parties to this agreement herein listed declare they will repeal ALL tariffs for ALL products and services within and between ALL such parties.” That’s between borders.

That’s it.

Truly FREE “free market agreement”, with emphasis on “free”, is more like this:
“All undersigned parties to this agreement herein listed declare they will repeal ALL internal tariffs (aka taxes) for ALL transactions between parties for products and services within, between, and among ALL and any group of humans within its borders.”

Now THAT is free trade.
