Herman van der Wee
Professor Van der Wee surveys the international economy country by country and sector by sector (with detailed information on raw materials, manufacturing, agriculture, etc.). He shows how the framework of complex, interlocking institutions - the IMF and the EEC, the Bretton Woods Agreement, the Law of the Sea, dollar standards and non-tariff barriers among others - exert a shaping influence on world trade.
