Overview

Factor Supply and Substitution, the second in a three-volume study entitled Trade and Employment in Developing Countries, extends the analysis of trade regimes and employment both in depth for single countries and through cross-country analyses.

The researchers combine technical expertise with specialized knowledge of the individual countries.
