Globalization and America`s Trade Agreements re-examines the theoretical framework and provides historical context for the impact of complex trade agreements reached by the United States over the past 25 years. M. Krist analyzes the themes of recent rounds of GATT/WTO negotiations and many U.S. free trade agreements and discusses how economists have approached trade policy and how historical experiences have influenced economic theory. It assesses the impact of trade agreements on the U.S. economy, the role of foreign policy in trade negotiations, the impact of trade on the economies of developing countries, and the impact of environmental and labor issues on trade agreements.
This book analyzes the rapid spread of free trade agreements (FTAs) around the world, their content and their economic impact. With Brexit and President Trump`s new protectionism, Melchior offers a timely assessment of key issues related to free trade agreements. Trade has been a key driver of global growth. Krist shows how trade policy has contributed to this growth and outlines what needs to be done to ensure that it can continue to promote our national goals. This book will serve as a valuable guide for those who are not familiar with trade policy and offers a difficult critique of trade policy for those who are already familiar with this area. This book brings together international perspectives on free trade issues that affect civil society, from the general population to the governments of nations, and is relevant not only to lawyers, but also to policymakers, international actors and businesses, as well as to those who have a general interest in free trade agreements. The book examines the manifestation of the concept of free trade in agreements such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), and the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement (ChAFTA). . . .
