7. 'Free trade' seems to mean different things to different people.

To some 'free trade' is only trade that is part of NAFTA or other 'free trade agreements' countries (20 countries in all).
To others it is all trade that is governed by the rules of the WTO membership without any 'free trade agreement' changes.
To still others it seems that all modern trade is 'free' including that with countries which do not belong to the WTO (22 countries, I think).
