Summaries
Main Description
Trade disputes between the United States, Canada, and Mexico surrounding agricultural products are all too frequent and show no signs of abating. As the United States increases agricultural imports while straining under a stagnant level of exports, there is growing tension between trading partners as evidenced by the significant increase in trade remedies being sought by competing countries. A conference held in Florida in 2003 that included lawyers, economists, and private sector representatives examined the issues surrounding trade disputes in industries such as lumber, live cattle, and wheat and dairy products. This book presents the findings of the conference and analyses trade disputes and relevant trade issues from 1995 to 2003. Using case studies to illustrate the complexity of trade disputes, this book examines many factors of trade issues such as United States farm policy, the role of politics, and the various trade remedy measures employed in resolving these disputes.
