Professor Rodrik,


What do you mean with "exchange of policy space"?

Living in a developing nation (Guatemala), I am interested to understand what change might be needed in how we approach to the WTO.

I suppose developing country economic policy makers tend to be educated in Western universities and are taught to exaggerate the gains to be made by further access to global markets.

Funnily enough, Pascal Lamy was in front of French economic journalists about a month ago. When I mentioned your work (and Stiglitz’s) as someone who did not believe that liberalization of trade was always beneficial for poor countries, he replied that those economists I mentioned were not trade specialists and so…

Dani,
One of the reasons developing countries exagerates the benefits of market access is because governments, and trade ministers in particular, are prone to emphasize the interest of exporters, generaly powerful businesspeople or high ranking government officials, whose benefits are clearer (and are willing to share them) than the cost for the poorer. Internal democracy and equality also matter.
Focusing in growth we loose
sight of distributional questions.
Liberté, egalité, fraternité.

Many places and centers offer business and trade promotions to both buyers and supplier.What about the differences in skill intensities across industries? The job losses in the relatively unskilled-labor intensive battery industry should have little effect on the relatively skilled-labor intensive machinery

The world is definitely complicated, but that’s till we think too much, if we stop over-thinking then it is very simple place to live on. I am doing Forex trading, it is very similar to life, if we keep it simple then we could get decent rewards, but if we try to make it complicated then we will only end up on negative side. I trade with OctaFX broker where things are made easier especially with the swap free account option available.
