Economic Development and Multilateral Trade Cooperation by Simon J Evenett( )
17 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 832 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is a critical period for the WTO and for realizing the potential of trade as a driver of growth and poverty reduction. It is time for good intentions to be translated into solid multilateral agreements that promote development, and it is high time that the rich countries tore down their barriers. But trade agreements by themselves cannot guarantee growth and poverty reduction: aid for trade and internal reforms are needed too. On all this, detail matters and trade agreements are complex. This book provides an up-to-date, clear, and thoughtful analysis of these crucial issues. It should be compulsory reading for all those who are concerned with taking forward the agenda on trade and development in a constructive way." - Sir Nicholas Stern, FBA Second Permanent Secretary to Her Majesty's Treasury Head of the Government Economic Service, U.K. How can international trade agreements promote development and how can rules be designed to benefit poor countries? Can multilateral trade cooperation in the World Trade Organization (WTO) help developing countries create and strengthen institutions and regulatory regimes that will enhance the gains from trade and integration into the global economy? And should this even be done? These are questions that confront policy makers and citizens in both rich and poor countries, and they are the subject of Economic Development and Multilateral Trade Cooperation. This book analyzes how the trading system could be made more supportive of economic development, without eroding the core WTO functions
Development, trade, and the WTO : a handbook by Bernard M Hoekman( Book )
24 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Publisher's description: Developing countries are increasingly confronted with the need to address trade policy related issues in international agreements, most prominently the World Trade Organization (WTO). New WTO negotiations on a broad range of subjects were launched in November 2001. Determining whether and how international trade agreements can support economic development is a major challenge. Stakeholders in developing countries must be informed on the issues and understand how their interests can be pursued through international cooperation. This handbook offers guidance on the design of trade policy reform, surveys key disciplines and the functioning of the World Trade Organization (WTO), and discusses numerous issues and options that confront developing countries in using international cooperation to improve domestic policy and obtain access to export markets. Many of the issues discussed are also relevant in the context of regional integration agreements. Separate sections of the handbook summarize what constitutes sound trade policy; the major aspects of the WTO from a development perspective; policy issues in the area of merchandise trade and the liberalization of international transactions in services; protection of intellectual property rights and economic development; new regulatory subjects that are emerging in the agenda of trade talks; and enhancing participation of developing countries in the global trading system

15 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Trade preference erosion measurement and policy response by M Bussolo( )
17 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume introduces the gender dimension in the empirical analyses on the links between trade and poverty. Gender disparities, an important component of overall inequality, may limit the gains from trade and the potential benefits to poor people. This view is supported by the robust finding that while growth (as well as the gains from trade) is the major vehicle of lifting people out of poverty, it is more likely to be pro-poor when initial inequality is low. High inequality directly lowers the rate of poverty reduction by hindering growth.Ample evidence shows that, in spite of recent impro

Liberalizing trade in services by Bernard M Hoekman( Book )
17 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since the mid 1980s a substantial amount of research has been undertaken on trade in services. Much of this is inspired by the World Trade Organization or regional trade agreements, especially the European Union, but an increasing number of papers focus on the impacts of services sector liberalization. This paper surveys the literature, focusing on contributions that investigate the determinants of international trade and investment in services, the potential gains from greater trade (and liberalization), and efforts to cooperate to achieve such liberalization through trade agreements. It concludes that there is increasing evidence that services liberalitztion is an important source of potential welfare gains, but relatively little research has been done that can inform the design of international cooperation -- both trade agreements and development assistance -- so as to more effectively promote development objectives
