GMF Fellow’s New Book Addresses History of Free Trade
GMF Transatlantic Fellow Kati Suominen and Gary C. Hufbauer, Reginald Jones Senior Fellow of the Peterson Institute for International Economics, have edited a new book entitled The Economics of Free Trade, a collection of academic work on free trade over the past 500 years.
Released in two volumes, The Economics of Free Trade surveys major scholarly writings in economics and political science that analyse drivers and constraints to free trade. Considering both pro-free trade and anti-free trade arguments, it includes studies that have changed the course of thinking over past centuries in addition to non-academic articles that have shaped popular views about international trade.
With 59 articles dating from 1664 to 2011, the collection’s contributors include Adam Smith, John Maynard Keynes, Paul Krugman, Jeffrey Sachs, and Robert Baldwin, along with an original introduction by the editors.
The book is due for release in March 2012. For more information visit www.e-elgar.com
