Product Description


“This book makes a valuable contribution to a critical debate: How can the WTO fulfill its intended role as the leader in trade liberalization? Debra Steger and her colleagues bring an impressive range of knowledge and experience to the topic, examining the issues from every angle.” (Craig VanGrasstek, President of Washington Trade Reports)

“Rather than simply analyzing the current functioning of the WTO, its problems and challenges, this volume is also a call to action. It lays out proposals that are likely to become a blueprint for reform of the WTO as an institution. Its contents are abundantly worthy of reflection and subsequent action. I recommend it highly to anyone who is concerned about the future of the global economy.” (Julio Lacarte Muró, first Chairman of the WTO Appellate Body and Chair of the Uruguay Round negotiations)

HASH(0x9cf0560c) out of 5 stars A top pick for community and college library economics collections April 17 2010
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Times change, and the rules of economics change with them. "WTO: Redesigning the World Trade Organization for the Twenty-First Century" discusses the World Trade Organization and its successes and failures in the modern day and how it can be revised and improved to stand the test of time and serve the world as the law on the necessary international trade. Many brilliant minds converge on the topic and offer much in the way of solutions and ideas for a more effective WTO of the future. Debra P. Steger serves as editor and presents a recommended read for anyone trying to understand the present and future of the WTO, making "WTO" a top pick for community and college library economics collections.
