Overview

One of the most worrisome trends in international trade is the growing use of government-imposed anticompetitive market distortions (ACMDs) in advanced developing countries. The distortions harm some of the most valuable U.S. export interests and the welfare of consumers in the countries where they exist. Shanker Singham details the scale of the ACMD problem and a strategy for the United States to combat them.
