    Zed Books 2004; US$ 20.95

    Free trade and its virtues are a mantra of contemporary economics, and a fixed point of policy for the World Trade Organization. But there are many economists who disagree, and there are many ideas for alternative ways of organizing world trade and increasing the development chances for poor countries. Little wonder that trade has moved beyond the... more...

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2007; US$ 56.00

  • Trade Liberalisation and The Poverty of Nationsby A.P Thirlwall; P Pacheco-López

    Edward Elgar Publishing 2008; US$ 40.00

    This book argues that orthodox theory is based on many unreal assumptions, and that there are sound economic arguments for selective protection of industrial activities in the early stages of economic development.

  • State Subsidies in the Global Economyby Nikolaos Zahariadis

    Palgrave Macmillan 2008; US$ 105.00

    Preferential Trade Agreements, many taking the form of Free Trade Agreements, now number over 300 and are rapidly increasing.
