About the Authors
  • Seeking reasons for international trading regimes not meeting poverty reduction goals, this book focuses on the role of corporations within the trading system, and the complex relationships between corporations, nation states and international organizations. The actions of corporations and their underlying motives are considered as well as the structure of the international trading system and globalization.

    • Contributes to the 'globalisation' debate, looking at the role which the giant corporations play in relation to states, the IMF, the World Bank and the World Trade Organisation
    • Examines both general and detailed issues in the debate: very topical post-Enron
    • Written by a highly respected international scholar
