Because it may take decades to establish rules for international trade in the many heterogeneous activities called "services," Professor Jackson thinks it would be best to start by creating an organization that a large number of countries would join. Under this umbrella countries prepared to go further could negotiate tighter agreements and make arrangements tailored to the character of different services. As an expert on GATT he warns against recreating some of its weaknesses. This interesting book strikes a different note from most recent American writing about services.
