Collier Books. Very Good+. 1994. First Edition. Softcover. 0020165552 . Excellent condition, light corner wear, a little corner curling, and light scuffing of cover. Clean & tight, no markings. From a Reviewer: "...Batra explains clearly why free trade has not been as beneficial as advertised. Though tariff cuts are generally seen as a tonic for the economy, Batra reviews statistics which show that real wages have fallen during the same era in which tariffs have been cut. In fact, Dr. Batra makes it clear that free trade can make the real GDP rise -- while simultaneously leading to the impverishment of the working class. Like a good economist, Dr. Batra realizes that tariffs are not a cure all. He intelligently points out that domestic competition behind tariff walls has historically been more important than international competition in spurring innmovation and productivity increases. In this light, he combines recommendations for tariffs with recommendations for an aggressive anti-trust and anti-merger policy. Even more interesting is Batra's focus on trade's negative environmental effects...." (400) ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall .
