The developing World contains 80 percent of the globe's population, but accounts for less than 25 percent of its trade. The tariffs imposed by rich nations on manufactured products from developing countries are four times higher than the duties on goods from other industrialized nations. This book examines the trade problems the developing nations face in the new Millennium.Professor Carl's detailed analysis of the effects of WTO rules-as well as rules of no less than 37 other regional trade agreements-on the economic infrastructures of developing nations is as telling and incisive as it is eloquent and insightful. It covers a wide spectrum of essential trade issues, including tariffs, quotas, subsidies, dumping, rules of origin, standards, safeguards, textiles, agriculture, and information technology. Professor Carl clearly shows why, in all of these areas, developing nations fail to benefit from multilateral trade agreements as currently constituted.This volume is an invaluable key to understanding the deepest and most serious flaws in the New World Order, q and an essential resource for practitioners, policymakers, business people, and scholars committed to an international trade regime that is truly qfree.qPublished under the Transnational Publishers imprint.q... rate is in place.1048 By mid- 1998, 15 AICO projects had been approved, including those of Toyota and Honda Motor Co.1049 ... of establishing regional patent and trademark offices.1052 Fields to be covered under the accord include copyright, ... exporters and importers of commercial services.1054 The ASEAN Framework Agreement on Services, 1055 adopted in ... a participating country would be allowed to aquot;modify or withdraw any commitmentaquot; after three years in its schedule ofanbsp;...
