Many governments want not only to grow their economies but also to influence how they are structured. To do so, they pursue industrial policies. Yet international organizations place limits on the extent to which governments can meddle in economic affairs. This informative book describes what forms of industrial policy are consistent with the rules of the World Trade Organization. The book is densely written and thick with legal terminology, but it is valuable as an authoritative reference work. In addition to analyzing WTO policies, Shadikhodjaev provides a useful catalog of areas where the wto’s rules are ambiguous and suggests how they might be clarified and improved.
