International trade is trade that takes place between two or more countries.
International trade is made more complex by exchange rate issues and political issues. Sometimes one country's government engages in subsidies for exports or tariffs for imports, hindering trade. Governments that do not pay subsidies or levy tariffs are said to have free trade policies. A country that imports more than it exports has a trade deficit.
