Format: Paperback
The collaborative effort of Timothy Josling (Emeritus Professor at the Food Research Institute and Senior Fellow at the Stanford Institute for International Studies, Stanford University), Donna Roberts (Senior Economist at the Economic Research Service, US Department of Agriculture), and David Orden (Senior Research Fellow at the International Food Policy Research Institute and a professor in the Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University), Food Regulation And Trade: Toward A Safe And Open Global System is a seminal and ground breaking study which examines the current state of regulation with respect to the increasingly global food system. Analyzing the underlying causes of trade conflicts precipitated by conflicting national interests as well as such emergency anomalies as the outbreak of "mad cow disease", Food Regulation And Trade outlines the steps that need to be taken in order to ensure that food safety and open trade become not only compatible but mutually supporting. With the use of illustrative case studies, suggestions for improving regulatory authority performance, the focus on what international institutions can do to coordinate international efforts among developed and developing countries, the necessity for international rules focused on reductions in transaction costs, Food Regulation And Trade is a timely and critically important contribution to corporate, governmental, and academic International Economics Studies reading lists and reference library collections.
