Overview

Schott (a former official of the U.S. Treasury Department and U.S. negotiator of the GATT Subsidies Code) presents 13 papers that assess previous and new free trade agreements negotiated between the United States and countries around the world. The policy outcomes of established agreements are examined and the objectives of agreements being pursued are discussed.
