The International Grain Trade
The International Grain Trade
By Nick Butler
St. Martin's, 1986, 176 pp

Arguing that the international grain trade is largely shaped by national policies in North America, Western Europe and the Soviet Union, a British economist at the Royal Institute of International Affairs analyzes these measures quite thoroughly and finds no good reason to expect major changes. He suggests some ways of reducing international friction and looks at some related topics in a useful survey of the world scene as of the summer of 1985.
