Trade and Globalization : An Introduction to Regional Trade Agreements Paperback / softback
Regional trade agreements (RTAs) are not new, but their complexity and importance in global economics and politics has grown exponentially in the past two decades.
Tackling this daunting proliferation head on, this book provides a much-needed guide to RTAs.
Setting current regional agreements in their economic, political, and historical context, David A.
Lynch describes and compares every significant RTA, region by region.
He clearly explains their intricate inner workings, their webs of collaboration and conflict, and their primary goals and effectiveness.
Lynch's deeply knowledgeable study bridges the ideological divides in scholarly and public debate, including economists' emphases on markets and efficiency versus antiglobalization activists' concerns over inequality and social ills.
By building a middle ground between micro and macro analysis and clarifying technical terminology, this concise and accessible book will be an invaluable reference for all readers.
