The Management of the World Economy

By Evan Luard
St. Martin's, 1983
270 pp. $27.50

Liberalization, nondiscrimination, multilateralism and full employment, the four pillars of the postwar international trade system, are all losing ground. This thoughtful book makes a good case for the view that to restore them, and bring the world back to economic growth, there will have to be increased international management in a number of key fields. The author, a British academic with political and diplomatic experience, examines the problems of combining efficiency with justice and calls for a "distributionist" strategy that turns needs into real demand.
