This chapter sketches the general or popular sources of free trade skepticism among ordinary citizens, civil society organizations, and policy makers in developing countries. It argues that the sentiment against free trade in developing countries is not simply a function of rent-seeking special interests. Free trade skepticism is rooted in a profound appreciation of the historical, ethical, legal, and political contexts in which the idea of free trade has been advanced and practiced.

Keywords:   free trade, skepticism, developing countries, policy makers, rent-seeking
