Misadventures of the Most Favored Nations: Clashing Egos, Inflated Ambitions, and the Great Shambles of the World Trade System
In more than seven years of global talks the WTO has struggled and failed to resolve contentious differences between rich and developing nations. Now, with a worldwide recession underway, the WTO's failure is contributing to a rise in protectionism--a sign that the world may not be so flat after all. "Misadventures of the Most Favored Nations" recounts, in vivid detail, how the highstakes negotiations went awry. At risk, Blustein argues, is the fate of the system that for six decades has opened the global economy and kept it from splintering.
Paul Blustein, a staff writer at the "Washington Post," has covered business and economic issues for more than twenty-five years. He has also worked at "Forbes Magazine" and the "Wall Street Journal," His work has won several prizes, including business journalism's most prestigious, the Gerald Loeb Award.
