Reviews
The economic prospects of developing and developed countries alike are being shaped by the international negotiations in progress at the World Trade Organization (WTO) about trade, services, investment and intellectual property rights. Based on interviews with people actually participating, this book lifts the shroud of secrecy surrounding these negotiations. What emerges is a disturbing picture that contradicts commonly held assumptions about the WTO, namely, that negotiations don't allow full participation by poor countries; that the EU and US dominate the agenda; that poor countries are often betrayed in the final outcomes.
