    Abstract

    Critically looks at the impact of trade and capital market liberalisation on income distribution and employment. Reviews the theory of trade liberalisation. Discusses labour intensities in trading and non-trading sectors, examines problems encountered in the shift to a liberalised regime and points out the importance of co-ordinating liberalisation with economic policy- making.
