Aid, Trade and Economic Development (Volume 23.4)

Main articles on Aid, Trade and Economic Development, guest edited by Razeen Sally

Price: £7.50

In this issue of Economic Affairs, commentators look at the role of the United States in the world political and economic order, the importance of migration in the process of globalisation, and the shameful record of development aid as a way of helping poor countries. There are additional articles on the hugely successful deregulation of taxes in Ireland - an issue that is being seriously considered in the UK; proposals to re-regulate buses and on the economics of sanctions. Economic Affairs also contains the usual columns on the City, the Environment and Education as well as book reviews.
