Issues of Environmental and labor Standards in the Global Trading System
AbstractThere have been increasing calls in recent years in the United States and other major industrialized countries for actions designed to harmonize domestic policies, institutions, and practices especially with regard to trade-related environmental and labor standards. As pointed out by Anderson (1996) and Bhagwativx!flhqf| lq ixuwkhu fdvhv1 Krzhyhu/ zh vkrz e| d f (1996), these calls for action have been motivated by a host of moral, economic, structural, and political factors. The purpose of our paper is to investigate the analytics, empirical evidence, institutional arrangements, and available policy options for address-ing the issues involved.
