Overview

This collection of papers by former students and colleagues celebrates the profound impact that Jagdish Bhagwati has had on the field of international economics over the past three decades. Bhagwati, who is the Arthur Lehman Professor of Economics at Columbia University, has made pathbreaking contributions to the theory of international trade and commercial policy, including immiserizing growth, domestic distortions, economic development, and political economy. His success and influence as a teacher and mentor is widely recognized among students at both MIT and Columbia, and as founder of the Journal of International Economics, he has encouraged research on many questions of theoretical and policy relevance. The political economy of trade policy, Bhagwati's most recent area of interest, is the theme of this collection which addresses salient topics including market distortions, income distribution, and the political process of policy-making.Sections and Contributors: - Market Distortions.

What People are Saying About This

Pranab Bardhan

This volume containing some major papers, theoretical and empirical, in the area of political economy of trade policy is a fitting tribute to Jagdish Bhagwati, an international stalwart in the field.

Charles P. Kindleberger

In the international-trade-theory Hall of Fame after Smith, Ricardo, and Mill before this century, then Taussig, Viner, Heckscher, Ohlin, Meade and Samuelson comes Jagdish Bhagwati, the hero of this Festschrift. Samuelson, in fact, calls this 'The Age of Bhagwati'. Teachers, colleagues, students, peers have joined to honor him and to celebrate and push ahead with his many innovative extensions of classic theory. For those who need to get up to date, here is a vital compendium.

Edward E. Leamer

Jagdish Bhagwati has been a highly productive, world class teacher and scholar over the last 40 years. This stimulating volume, by former students and professional colleagues, is a fitting tribute to him and his work. It advances several topics on which Bhagwati himself pioneered and adds some important new ones.
