Synopses & Reviews
The last decade has witnessed important developments in international trade policy, both at the multilateral and regional levels. "International Trade Policy" provides an extensive, in-depth analysis of the theoretical and policy considerations which underlie these developments.
Topics covered include key theoretical and policy issues such as voluntary export restraints, anti-dumping and unfair trading practices, agricultural protectionism, and regionalism; the results of the Uruguay round of negotiations and their effect on policy; the issues which govern many current trade disputes, including trade-related intellectual property rights; the major issues involved in setting up regional trading areas; the likely future agenda for the newly created World Trading Organization. As trade negotiations become increasingly complex, this volume will be essential for all those who want to understand what governments do, in terms of trade policy, and how they do it.
This volume provides an introduction to the basic theory behind international trade policy. The author analyzes current policy issues within a theoretical framework. The book adopts a thematic approach, with each chapter examining a different issue.
