North-south Trade, Employment and Inequality Summary

North-south Trade, Employment and Inequality: Changing Fortunes in a Skill-driven World by Adrian Wood

This volume argues that the expansion of trade between developed and developing countries is the main cause of rising economic inequality in the USA and of chronic unemployment in Europe. It explains how these problems could be tackled without raising barriers to trade or jeopardising the progress of the Third World. The policy issues identified are central to the current reappraisal of economic and social priorities in the USA and Europe and to the continuing debate over Third World development strategy.
