About this product
- DescriptionThis book explores the real record and legacy of the World Trade Organization. In its eight years of being the world's highest authority on global trade, the WTO has extended its reach into the democratic processes of local communities, in determining what local laws - from worker protections to anti-child labor statutes - interfere with international commerce. Through a battery of new agreements and legal challenges--whose outcomes are determined in secret courts, presided over by judges partial to the industries that bring the suits--the group furthers its one purpose: spreading the corporate ecomic globalization trade agenda, over concerns of democratic and accountable government.
- Author BiographyLori Wallach is the director of Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch, which was created in 1995 to promote government and corporate accountability in the globalization and trade arena. GTW promotes a public interest perspective on an array of globalization issues, including implications for health and safety, environmental protection, economic justice, and democratic, accountable governance.
