Latin America and the Global Economy: Export Trade and the Threat of Protectionism (Hardback)R. Fischer (editor)
Hardback 277 Pages
Countries in Latin America have only recently begun to liberalize their economies and move towards free trade. However, non-traditional barriers to trade threaten this new direction of development. This collection uses the point of view of a developing country to analyse the effects of new forms of protection. It introduces a theoretical framework to analyse the effects of standards and contingent protection. A series of studies examine the global effects on Latin American trade. Specifically, four case-studies examine the effects of these new forms of protection on: environmental standards, labour standards, consumer protection and the problems facing Latin America cross-border investment.
