Trade Impact Defense

Recommended Posts

I don't think economic trade is in itself an impact; certain types of trade like slave trade, etc. can be impacts 

 

Slave trade links into bigger more important impacts like oppression. Could you tell us what your aff is saying and the advantages you're cutting the impact defense for? You (or whoever on your team) need to tell us exactly what the impact is, or we can't give you guidance. A couple off the top of my head are:

I wish I had a memory like that LOL. It's from my impact defense TOC, I just deleted the impacts that didn't have relevance to what the OP's impacts might be.

Yeah no By trade impact, he means Capitalist peace theory. Its the theory that Trade/interdependence makes it irrational to go to war because interdependent economies will have bigger fish to worry about if they can't have their fill of essential commodities from the enemy they go to war against.

I think the best place to apply defense to a trade impact is not at the terminal level (it is very difficult to prove that trade is not good, or even worse that the absolute stoppage of trade would not be horrific), but rather the internal link.  It is so so so so so unlikely that any major trading partner would dissolve itself on the back of any single dispute.  People love to read advantages that argue China will stop trading with the US (read: decrease trade by a small percentage) but the truth is that any given trade is itself independently valuable, and so there is never a financial incentive to decrease trade in the abstract.  Force the other team to get more specific: what will country X stop trading and what is the impact to that?  It is much more likely that China/Korea/"Latin America" would stop trading good XYZ than all goods in sum.  It will be difficult for them to prove good XYZ is independently valuable unless they are deep in their lit base, which good teams will be.

 

In short: argue that trade is globally inevitable and that the sum total of possible trade networks is so large and so robust that the other teams terminal impact cards have no threshold and no uniqueness.  Unless they have cards very specific to good XYZ, you shouldn't have trouble winning at the internal link level.

This card isn't very in depth, but provides the useful warrants and talking points regarding the trade impact debate

 

Trade doesn’t solve war---ideology outweighs, history disproves, trade isn’t symmetrical and creates power competition, and interdepence amplifies crises causing more conflict

Mazhid Kat 2015, King's College London, European & International Studies, “A Conceptual Analysis of Realism in International Political Economy,”4-16-15, e-IR, http://www.e-ir.info/2015/04/16/a-conceptual-analysis-of-realism-in-international-political-economy/ //JBf

The main critics of realism are liberals. They argue that growing integration of the world economy and interdependence among states will create a more peaceful and stable global order because aggressive actions will lead to huge economic losses. However, this concept misses several points. Firstly, even greatly economically interdependent states may start wars with one another, as was seen with the British Empire and Germany in the beginning of the 20th century.[xxix] Moreover, interdependence is usually not perfectly symmetrical. In many cases, weak states become more dependent on major powers.[xxx] Leading powers, in turn, use their economic power to promote global regimes more favourable to themselves. Also, interdependence can le[a]d to economic crises becoming more wide spread, which in turn leads to negative consequences in different parts of the world.[xxxi] For instance, the Great Depression in the United States during the 1930s was one of the reasons for huge economic problems in Germany, which were used by Hitler in his rise to power. Finally, some states have ideologies which prevail over economic interests. For example, North Korea conducts a Juche policy of self-sufficiency and Russia continues to experience significant economic losses because of its imperialistic turn.
