Tenth in an annual series in which top economists provide a concise evaluation of major developments in trade and trade policy. This book provides a systematic analysis of the influence of politics on the operations of the International Monetary Fund, and considers whether the WTO should have an interest in food safety issues. By looking in detail at regional and national issues, such as trade liberalisation in South Asia and trade policy in Slovenia, it should help readers to think constructively about the future role of the IMF and WTO.
