Bama, that would require international cooperation because many products, especially agricultural products are subsidized by the governments of the countries in which they are grown. Also, these governments have wage and price controls, different labor laws, and so on, all of which impact the price of goods and services.

In order to achieve what you suggest, the entire world would have to agree that absolutely no government control anywhere would be allowed or that all governments would have the same degree of government control on industry, agriculture, commerce and trade.

I just don't foresee the world's arriving at that level of global cooperation in our lifetime. In fact, the only scenario in which I can imagine global agreement on that scale would be if we were attacked from outer space or had to fight a pandemic on a scale of historic plagues.
