About this product
- DescriptionGrowing international trade has helped lift living standards around the world, and yet free trade is always under attack. Critics complain that trade forces painful ecomic adjustments, such as plant closings and layoffs of workers, and charge that the World Trade Organization serves the interests of corporations, undercuts domestic environmental regulations, and erodes America's sovereignty. Why has global trade--and trade agreements such as NAFTA--become so controversial? Does free trade deserve its bad reputation? In Free Trade under Fire, Douglas Irwin sweeps aside the misconceptions that litter the debate over trade and gives the reader a clear understanding of the issues involved. This fourth edition has been thoroughly updated to include the most recent policy developments and the latest research findings on the impact of trade.
- Author BiographyDouglas A. Irwin is professor of economics at Dartmouth College and the author of Against the Tide: An Intellectual History of Free Trade, Peddling Protectionism: Smoot-Hawley and the Great Depression (both Princeton), and Trade Policy Disaster: Lessons from the 1930s.
