1. Trade Costs and Facilitation: Open Trade and Economic Development

    Trade Costs and Facilitation: Open Trade and Economic Development

    Edited by Jean-Christophe Maur, John S. Wilson
    The need for countries to facilitate trade and to reduce the transactions costs plaguing trade is receiving a lot of interest in policy circles, and in particular in the WTO, where trade facilitation has been one of the few good stories in recent multilateral negotiations. Is this interest justified? What have economic theory and empirical findings to contribute to our understanding of the value of free trade? This authoritative two-volume set, edited by two leading scholars in the field, offers a collection of seminal articles that have led our economic thinking on these issues and encouraged a new and growing literature. This important work, along with an original introduction by the editors, is of immense value to scholars and practitioners interested in the topic of trade costs and facilitation. Learn More

    Edited by Graham Bird, Dane Rowlands
    A large and growing academic literature seeks to analyse the key aspects of the International Monetary Fund’s operations from both theoretical and empirical perspectives.

The collected articles demonstrate the way in which research on the IMF has evolved over time. They cover the role of the IMF, the determinants of IMF lending, conditionality and the implementation and effects of IMF programs, the prolonged use of IMF resources as well as the IMF’s own reserve asset, the Special Drawing Right. No serious student of the IMF will want to be without this up-to-date and comprehensive collection. Learn More

  15. The WTO, Safeguards, and Temporary Protection from Imports

    The WTO, Safeguards, and Temporary Protection from Imports

    Edited by Chad P. Brown
    Temporary protection from fairly traded imports under the World Trade Organization (WTO) typically refers to a national government's use of a ‘safeguard’ tariff, quota or tariff rate quota. Safeguard provisions allow a WTO member’s national government to investigate whether a domestic industry is injured because of fairly traded, but imported goods; and then impose a temporary unilateral import restriction that would otherwise be in violation of market access commitments. This book presents some of the key theoretical and empirical research articles in the economics, legal and policy literature examining the structure and use of such temporary import protection programmes.
