FREE RESOURCE: A resource is free if it can produce all of the goods people want or need it to produce... and then some. Being free, however, doesn't mean a resource is not limited. Maybe it's free because people just can"t figure out what to do with it. Or if it is used for production, people don"t want all that's produced. For most of the time across most of this planet air is a free good. In other words, there is plenty of air to go around, plenty of air to satisfy all of the existing wants and needs. Does this mean that air is NOT valuable? Quite the contrary. Air is extremely valuable. It provides one of the most important inputs into human life. It's a free resource because there's enough to go around.

IMPORT QUOTAS

Quantity restrictions imposed by the government of one nation on imports from other nations. The primary goal of import quotas is to reduce imports and increase domestic production. Because the quantity of imports is restricted, the price of imports increases, which thus encourages domestic consumers to buy more domestic production. Import quotas are one of three common foreign trade policies designed to discourage imports and/or encourage exports. The other two are tariffs and export subsidies.
