Unfinished Business? The Wto's Doha Agenda

Overview

"I really admire the authors, who - in a time of political impasse - provide a strong and well argued analysis of the WTO Doha Round. It becomes crystal clear that there are solid economic benefits from concluding the Doha Round, but even clearer that there are strong political benefits in terms of openness, security and positive effects on multilateral negotiations. This is exactly what the world needs in a time of crisis!"

Overview

"I really admire the authors, who - in a time of political impasse - provide a strong and well argued analysis of the WTO Doha Round. It becomes crystal clear that there are solid economic benefits from concluding the Doha Round, but even clearer that there are strong political benefits in terms of openness, security and positive effects on multilateral negotiations. This is exactly what the world needs in a time of crisis!"

Christian Friis Bach, Minister for Development Cooperation, Denmark;
Affiliated Professor at the University of Copenhagen.

"The World Bank, led by the troika of outstanding trade economists Aaditya Mattoo, Will Martin and Bernard Hoekman, has established itself as an important player in trade negotiations through excellent research. This splendid volume on the Doha Round shows why. Read it to see why failure to close the Round would be a tragedy."

Jagdish Bhagwati, University Professor, Economics and Law, Columbia
University; Senior Fellow in International Economics at the Council on Foreign
Relations

"This is an excellent book which reflects one of the most comprehensive analyses done on the draft agreements by an excellent team of renowned trade experts. The Doha Development Agenda is still as relevant as ever to achieve trade and development, and thus this body of work comes at a timely juncture as we search for a way forward in these very important negotiations. I recommend this book for all those who are serious about achieving the end game, especially the middle D in DDA - development."

Mari Pangestu, Minister of Trade, Indonesia

"This book reviews the Doha Round negotiations and offers lessons relevant to the current stalemate. No important topic is omitted, the information provided is extremely rich, the calculations are presented in a simple way, and the analysis is rigorous. The book is a must for a very wide audience - from negotiators and economists to anyone interested in the fate of the trade regime which is so critical for the economic recovery of rich countries and for the continued growth of developing countries."

Patrick Messerlin, Professor of Economics at Sciences Po, Paris
