Preview

Chapter 6 focuses on trade policy and the environment and the ways in which differing goals in the two camps can be reconciled. It also shows how trade does not typically harm the environment, how the WTO does not prevent countries from following strong environmental policies, and how using the WTO to try to enforce environmental standards is the wrong approach to the problem.
