Unequal Exchange: Developing Countries in the International Trade Negotiations
AbstractThe outcome of the Uruguay Round show that the concessions given by developing countries were more valuable than those they received from industrial countries. I suggest that this outcome is explained by the aggresive demands from industrial countries and the lack of resources (human and financial) at the disposal of developing countries. The paper discussess the costs of these unequal exchanges, and the structural factors that help to understand the processess leading to these outcomes.
