This collection of essays by international lawyers and moral philosophers arises from a prestigious multi-disciplinary conference to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the repeal of the Corn Laws in 1846. It examines the legal, moral and political dimensions of free trade. Contributors explore issues such as:
* the ethics and rules of competition
* the idea of global justice
* the problem of international exploitation
* the protection of the environment
* the regulation services
* international taxation and the justifications for barriers to trade.
This book provides an important insight into the continuing debates surrounding free trade. It is an important text for experts across the fields of economics, politics and law as well as to those with an interest in international trade.
