International Trade Policy highlights the effects of regional economic integration in Europe and elsewhere, not only the direct effects in the respective regions, but also the effects on the global trade policy. Also, a number of special trade policy arrangements between rich and poor countries are covered. The global GATT and WTO co-operation is explained and critically evaluated.
The book's concluding sections contain critical discussions of the effects of different trade policy strategies on economic development and of whether free trade is always better than certain forms of protection.
This policy textbook is designed as a companion to any good text in International Economics used at intermediate level university and business school courses as well as MBA programs.
