Introduction The managing director of the Four X Company is concerned about the implications concerning the issues mentioned below. As a legal advisor, I have been asked to address the issues in terms of research and analysis of GATT/WTO principles and structure. My purpose is to advise the Four-X company on the action that the country of Fargo may take against the country of Narnia under GATT/WTO Law, specifically, whether it can challenge the Designer Tax. I think that the Four X company does can challenge the Designer Tax, because it is was introduced in contradiction with the theories of international trade. Besides, the government of the country of Narnia did not have the sovereignty t ...

International Trade And Globalization - 820 words
In today's world there are many issues in need of reformation, one of which is international trade, otherwise known as globalization. Although there are a great deal of rules, regulations, and policies imposed on international trade, the manner in which those rules have been enforced is a major controversy that seems to be escalating day by day. At the center of the controversy is the World Trade Organization (WTO). The WTO was established in 1995 in order to transform the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) into an enforceable global commercial code. Critics of the WTO say that instead of being run democratically and in the interest of member countries, it has become the enforcer ...

... attern of systematic development also characterized American agriculture. In the year 1879, 74 percent of the American labor force worked on farms (Bolino, 34). The figure today is under 2 percent (Bolino, 34). There were some prosperous tobacco plantations in Virginia and Maryland, but most farmers and their families, which is to say most Americans, grew crops primarily for their own consumption. They had already started to barter with each other, and to buy and sell produce in significant quantities. So some specialization had begun. This shift in farming patterns was the real beginning of American capitalism on a broad scale, at least outside the major commercial cities of the eastern ...

If the banks of Japan were able to persuade the person in charge they then would have the ability to change the rules of the game in which they play, and without a doubt these adjustments would work in their favor. This type of scandalous action would not only create an unleveled playing field but eliminated the Japanese method of monitoring and obtaining information about the validity and integrity of Japanese banking policies. The only answer to the problem would be to eliminate the Mof-tan and create a new way to gather information about ...

... . The equilibrium theory developed by Samuelson studied the interaction between all prices and quantities in an economic system. Under this theory Samuelson demonstrated that free trade is superior to protection by tariffs. Even though it is a known fact that foreign trade causes redistribution within countries, it is more beneficial for individuals benefiting from free trade to completely compensate those who lose in international trade. This method is more beneficial to all involved than the use of tariffs which raise the price of the product and reduce the rewards for international trade. Traditional thinking regarding capital theory was that there must be an application of an aggrega ...

Subject #2: Does the Leontief paradox invalidate the Heckscher-Ohlin model of trade? Why and how countries trade has always been a difficult and capital question for economists. The Ricardian model explained trade patterns through differences in labour productivity, however international trade can only partially be explained this way. It has also been wildly believed that resource allocation also plays a vital role in how nations trade, Heckscher-Ohlin (H-O), two Swedish economists, were the first to integrate resource allocation in an economic model of trade now referred to as the Heckscher-Ohlin model of trade. This theory was generally accepted when it was published. However Leontief publ ...

The Inuit People Of The Arctic - 1,403 words
The Inuit are one of the many self-designations of the Eskimo people. They are considered to be of Asian decent, which is noticeable from their small hands and feet. Another distinguishing feature is the appreciable percentage of the B blood type, which seems to be totally absent from the American Indian, whom they are usually mistaken to be descendants of (Mastny 25). These Inuit are scattered in small communities across Northern Alaska, northern Canada, Greenland, and the Chukotka region of Eastern Siberia. The Inuit in these regions total around 150,000 that makes up barely 4 percent of the Arctics total population of 3.8 million (Mastny 25). The origins of the Inuit living in this region ...

It is sometimes said that the widening gap between the rich and the poor is due to the fact that capital is so easily shifted around the globe while labor, bound to family and place, is not. But there is nothing natural about this. Human beings, after all, have wandered the earth for ages - crossing oceans and continents, in search of food, land, and adventure - whereas a factory, shipyard, or office building, once built, is almost impossible to move in a cost effective way. In the decades following World War II, many Latin American countries were involved in Import-Substituting Industrialization (ISI) to be self-sufficient and maintain their nationalism. The decision to adopt aggressive pro ...

Laissez Faire - 1,113 words
Classical Laissez-faire Economics The earliest organized school of economic thought is known as Classical. The father of this school is Adam Smith. Smith used the concept of the invisible hand to describe the role of the market in the allocation of resources. In the market, the interaction of demand and supply determines how much of a good will be produced and the price that is charged for that good. Absent any explicit guidance mechanism, the invisible hand guides participants in the market towards an outcome that efficiently allocates resources to the production of goods that society desires. Other important classical economists include David Ricardo who introduced and developed the concep ...

... demand. With falling demand for output, business investment sank. High tariffs prevented an export-driven growth stimulus (2). (1) Flexible and falling prices, wages, and interest rates could offset an economic slowdown in several ways. In a business downturn, a decrease in labor demand and layoffs lead to a decrease in wages. Lower wages reduce the relative price of employing labor relative to capital and create an offsetting increase in the demand for labor. If prices fall further than wages, then purchasing power increases. Furthermore, with falling prices, the value of wealth holdings also increases - both effects contribute to increased consumption, offsetting the initial decrease ...

Although the countrys capital had been transformed, it had been done at an immense cost, something that would come back to hurt France economically, which would then begin to stir negative public opinion about the emperor. For the most part, Napoleon IIIs policies had held a positive impact on the country of France, in addition to its people. Things began to change during the economic crisis of 1857. One problem causing the crisis is the minimal returns on the massive investments the French people made to develop the railway system and expand public works departments. This hurt the Credit Mobilier as railway shares fell in value, resulting in a decline in railway construction. Th ...

Environmentalists Say Down With The Wto - 609 words
Environmentalists say "Down with the WTO" "Trade is the ally of working people, not their enemy," WTO Director-General Mike Moore told trade union representatives. "As living standards improve, so too does education, health, the environment and labor standards." That is false; the main goal of the WTO, since established in 1995 is to promote international trade. They don't care about the trade off of a safe environment. Their main concern is flourishing economies despite environmental conditions worsening. "Such actions worry environmentalists who argue the WTO favors the growth of trade over public safety." People not profits need to be WTO's top priority. We are striving to get across the ...
