Development, trade, and the WTO : a handbook ( Book )
11 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 629 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.

Moving people to deliver services ( Book )
20 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 409 libraries worldwide
"The World Trade Organization now confronts an issue that lies at the interface of two major world challenges: trade liberalization and international migration. Moving People to Deliver Services breaks new ground by examing the economic, legal, and political implications of the "temporary movement of individual service suppliers" currently being negotiated under the WTO's General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS)." "Conditions in many developed economies - ranging from aging populations to shortages of skilled labor - suggest that this may be a propitious time to put labor mobility squarely on the negotiating agenda. Yet a limited awareness of how GATS can be used to foster services trade liberalization combined with concerns about the potential for social disruption in host countries and the risk of "brain drain" in poor countries have frustrated efforts to reach a consensus." "Moving People to Deliver Services brings together contributions from service providers, regulators (including ministries of labor and justice), researchers, trade negotiators, and the private sector. They provide a broad range of perspectives on the one central question: How can service trade liberalization be accomplished in a way that benefits both home and host countries? The result is a balanced consideration of the issues surrounding WTO labor mobility negotiations at a historically critical juncture."--BOOK JACKET.

Services trade and development : the experience of Zambia ( Book )
11 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 259 libraries worldwide
Some see trade in services as irrelevant to the development agenda for least developed countries (LDCs). Others see few benefits from past market openings by LDCs. This book debunks both views. It finds that serious imperfections in Zambia's reform of services trade deprived the country of significant benefits and diminished faith in liberalization. What is to be done? Move aggressively and consistently to eliminate barriers to entry and competition. Develop and enforce regulations to deal with market failures. And implement proactive policies to widen the access of firms, farms, and consumers.
From competition at home to competing abroad : a case study of India's horticulture by Aaditya Mattoo ( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 90 libraries worldwide
"India is a large, low cost agricultural producer. Yet its share in global agriculture exports is insignificant and its domestic market is protected. In global trade negotiations, India's efforts have been directed more towards retaining the right to protect than towards eliminating distortions at home and abroad. The study seeks a solution to this puzzle by examining the horticulture sector, one of the most dynamic segments of Indian agriculture and international trade. It undertakes an integrated analysis of the sector - from farm to retail - based on primary surveys of farmers, agents, and exporters across fifteen different Indian states." "This report will be of interest to policymakers, trade negotiators, trade analysts, aid institutions, NGOs, and readers interested in trade and development. Students, teachers, and researchers in development economics and agriculture will also find it a useful resource."--BOOK JACKET.

Liberalizing basic telecommunications : the Asian experience by Carsten Fink ( Book )
10 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 41 libraries worldwide
Despite the move away from traditional public monopolies, most Asian governments are still unwilling to allow unrestricted entry in telecommunications, eliminate limits on private and foreign ownership, and establish strong, independent regulators. But where comprehensive reform has been undertaken (including privatization, competition, and regulation) the availability of main lines, the quality of service, and the productivity of labor are significantly higher.

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 36 libraries worldwide
The General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) has created a more secure environment for trade in services, but it has not created the negotiating momentum to reduce protection or the rules to ensure that protection takes a considerable form. In dealing with the trade-impeding impact of domestic regulators, it has achieved even less.

Can no antitrust policy be better than some antitrust policy by Aaditya Mattoo ( Book )

Partial antitrust policy may lead to less competitive market structures than the total absence of such policy. There may sometimes even be a case for the government providing incentives for particular forms of merger.
Does health insurance impede trade in health care services by Aaditya Mattoo ( Book )
5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 32 libraries worldwide
There is limited trade in health services despite big differences in the price of health care across countries. Whether patients travel abroad for health care depends on the coverage of treatments by their health insurance plan. Under existing health insurance contracts, the gains from trade are not fully internalized by the consumer. The result is a strong "local-market bias" in the consumption of health care. A simple modification of existing insurance products can create sufficient incentives for consumers to travel. For just 15 highly tradable, low-risk treatments, the annual savings to the United States would be $1.4 billion even if only one in 10 patients who need these treatments went abroad. Half of these annual savings would accrue to the Medicare program alone. The authors examine how measures by destination countries to improve and credibly signal the quality of health care can enhance the scope for trade.
