The World's Wine Markets: Globalization at Work available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- Elgar, Edward Publishing, Inc.
Economists mostly from wine producing countries and many working in the wine industry itself focus on the dramatic changes in the international wine market since the late 1980s, during which time the share of wine production that is traded internationally has nearly doubled globally, and the New World's share of those export earnings has risen from its historical level of less than two percent to twenty percent. Each considers a particular country or region, among the less expected being the Nordic countries, eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, and east Asia. The 15 papers are revisions of the less technical presentations at a wine economics workshop held in Adelaide in October 2001 preceding an international wine conference; the technical papers were tapped off for academic journals.
