One trading world, or many: the issue of regional trading blocs

Over the past several decades, more and more countries have entered into preferential trading arrangements, provoking concern that the benefits of free trade are being sacrificed to growing discrimination. Just how widespread is this discrimination in international trade, and is it "legitimate" under the codes of international behavior to which countries generally subscribe?

The International Monetary Fund 50 years after Bretton Woods

In July 1944 at Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, delegates from 44 nations agreed upon an international monetary system to be established following World War II.

The article discusses the means and methods the IMF has employed to achieve its ...
