"In this book Nobel prize-winning economist Joseph E. Stiglitz and his co-author Andrew Charlton address one of the key issues facing world leaders today. They put forward a radical and realistic new model for managing trading relationships between the richest and the poorest countries. Their approach is designed to open up markets in the interests of all and not just the most powerful economies, to ensure that trade promotes development, and to minimise the costs of adjustments. Beginning with a brief history of the World Trade Organisation and its agreements, the authors explore the issues and events which led to the failure of Cancun and the obstacles that face the successful completion of the Doha Round of negotiations. Finally they spell out the reforms and principles upon which a successful agreement must be based. Accessibly written and packed full of empirical evidence and analysis, this book is a must read for anyone interested in world trade and development."--BOOK JACKET.

First, a major annoyance. Stiglitz is described as /// Winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics and author \\\ What? There has never been a Nobel Prize in Economics, which probably accounts why the majority of recipients of this nonexistent award are buffoons! The Nobel family and foundation NEVER endowed any such prize; the Nobel family DOES NOT recognize any such prize! There is a Swedish Central Bank Prize in Economical Sciences . . . ., and Stiglitz and bank lobbyist Paul Krughman have both been awarded this, but nobody in the know cares. Stiglitz is a nice guy, but that really is all he is. He is certainly to mediocre to be much of a thinker in the voodoo realm of economics. What bothers me the most about this book is that Stiglitz appears clueless as to the underlying agenda of the WTO --- hasn't he ever read their Financial Services Agreement, for gosh sakes!
