What’s wrong with world food markets?

On 1 June, I par­tic­i­pat­ed in a meet­ing orga­nized by the Dhakar Cham­ber of Com­merce in con­junc­tion with the Third Min­is­te­r­i­al Meet­ing of Trade Min­is­ters of Least-Devel­oped coun­tries. I was invit­ed to talk about the Doha round nego­ti­a­tions on agri­cul­tur­al trade, with a par­tic­u­lar empha­sis on the inter­ests of devel­op­ing and least-devel­oped coun­tries. The pre­sen­ta­tion is avail­able “here (Agri­cul­ture pre­sen­ta­tion in PDF format)”:www.inquit.com/assets/AgricultureLiberalization.pdf as a PDF file (280kb) It con­tains, among oth­er things, an analy­sis of the ‘Harbin­son’ com­pro­mise pro­pos­als as a response to the requests and pro­pos­als of the African group in the WTO (as a proxy for the objec­tives of least-devel­oped countries).
