I got A.

Let me try to explain, wonn 'economist say that rich nations join' in B make it universal truth and hence always always true? There is no universal truth here.
Also this sentence is about cause and effect, a free trade encouragement may not always have same effect.

A it is.

B looks good too, but I've learned from my weeks of practice, that if there's nothing wrong with A stay with A. Some other choices might sound a little better, but if there are no grammar flaws in A, in most cases that's the correct answer.

A

B is wrong - also because maintaining is not parallel to encourages.
