BeschreibungThis volume addresses highly topical issues at a crucial time in international economic relations. The world has never been closer to dismantling the liberal multilateral trading system which has been painstakingly established and successfully operated since the Second World War. In this volume many of the world's most distinguished economists examine the movement towards protectionism, bilateralism, and regionalism, and its causes, effects, and possible solutions.

Pressestimmen"The volume's interest lies not so much in any overall assessment of the effect of protectionism on well-being as in the stimulating arguments about the merits of particular trade-inhibiting strategies." Patrick Clawson, Orbis "Overall, this volume is more than informative by combining theoretical, empirical and policy papers. It is a rewarding (and at times taxing) read." X. De Vanssay, Journal of European Integration
