AbstractOn February 3, 1998, the Institute for International Economics held a conference on fast-track legislation, the proposed renewal of presidential authority to implement trade agreements. Congress granted the president fast-track authority from 1975 to 1993. Recently, however, that authority has come under intense scrutiny as a result of its key role in the continued pursuit of regional and global trade liberalization. This volume includes the papers presented at that conference and highlights key points from the discussion, which included 13 members of Congress. Topics ranged from suggested changes in the negotiating authority provided by the legislation to questions about social justice and domestic adjustment in an age of rapid globalization.
