Fair Trade for All
How Trade Can Promote Development
and not just the most powerful economies, to ensure that trade promotes development, and to minimise the costs of adjustments. Beginning with a brief history of the World Trade Organisation and its agreements, the authors explore the issues and events which led to the failure of Cancun and the
obstacles that face the successful completion of the Doha Round of negotiations. Finally they spell out the reforms and principles upon which a successful agreement must be based. Accessibly written and packed full of empirical evidence and analysis, this book is a must read for anyone interested in world trade and development. - ;A challenging and interesting book...This is an excellent contribution to the debate on trade policy. It is knowledgeable and authoritative, as one would expect from Stiglitz, who is a Nobel prize-winner and who was top economist at the World Bank. It is very practical in outlining general principles and giving detailed examples. The beauty of this book is that it adopts the sensible approach to markets to which most economists subscribe...a timely and valuable
contribution. - Huw Dixon, Higher Education Supplement;The book offers a sharp challenge to the 'market fundamentalist' view that the best way poor countries can improve their lot is to eliminate all their trade barriers ss rapidly as possible. - Washington Post;We are stuck with a global economic system that doesn't work for half the world. Stiglitz and Charlton propose a plan to embrace the other half, to move to a future of shared benefits and shared responsibilities. - President Bill Clinton;The authors have provided valuable analysis and proposals which deserve to be debated further - Political Studies Review;Stiglitz brings considerable practical experience to bear on this analysis. - Jawade Liaqat, Tribune
