About this product
- DescriptionAgainst the backdrop of a 20-year revolt against free trade orthodoxy by ecomists inside the UN and their impact on policy discussions since the 1960s, the authors show how the UN both nurtured and inhibited creative and vel intellectual contributions to the trade and development debate. Presenting a stirring account of the main UN actors in this debate, The UN and Global Political Ecomy focuses on the accomplishments and struggles of UN ecomists and the role played by such UN agencies as the Department of Ecomic (and Social) Affairs, the United Nations Commission on Trade and Development, and the Ecomic Commission for Latin America (and the Caribbean). It also looks closely at the effects of the Latin American debt crisis of the 1980s, the growing strength of the World Trade Organization (WTO) in the 1990s, and the lessons to be drawn from these and other recent developments.
