New Directions in Our Trade Policy
New Directions in Our Trade Policy
By William Diebold, Jr
Council on Foreign Relations, 1941, 174 pp

After examining the successes and failures of the Hull program, the author demonstrates its basic incompatibility with wartime needs as proved by the impact of belligerent and neutral trade controls on the principal agreements made under it. The new measures of commercial policy introduced in this country are described, and the possibilities of shaping a unified trade policy consistent with our foreign policy as a whole are discussed in some detail.
