Agriculture and the New Trade Agenda: Creating a Global Trading Environment for Developmentby Merlinda D. Ingco, L. Alan Winters
Pub. Date: 02/28/2008
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This collection of essays provides the definitive survey of the importance of agricultural reform to the future of the world's trading system. There is growing consensus concerning the need to reduce the level of subsidies in agriculture and to open up the markets of the developed world more to the farmers of the developing world. However, while non-governmental organizations such as Oxfam may agree on this point with free trade economists, governments in Europe and the U.S. seem reluctant to give up their protectionist habits.
