"One of the seemingly natural reactions to an economic downturn is protectionism. The Great Depression is the classic example where this reaction has had its most significant, and indeed, negative impact on recovery, further weakening exports, imports and trade generally. Many nations now resist this temptation in relation to the free trade of goods; however, free trade has rarely ever been extended to the persons entering the UK from outside the European Union."
