The North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta): Good For Jobs, For The Environment, And For America, Thomas J. Schoenbaum Dec 1993

The North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta): Good For Jobs, For The Environment, And For America, Thomas J. Schoenbaum

Scholarly Works

Although NAFTA's impact is primarily economic, it will also have a profound political impact, especially on relations between Mexico and the United States. In coming to the decision to seek a free trade agreement with the United States, Mexico has already made important political decisions: to jettison its defensive nationalism and fear of United States domination; to reform and liberalize its economic system; and to pave the way for democratizing its political institutions. The United States, in turn, has long sought a solid foundation to overcome its often prickly relationship with its southern neighbor and other Latin American nations ...

The Human Costs Of Nafta, Melvin Burke Sep 1993

The Human Costs Of Nafta, Melvin Burke

School of Economics Faculty Scholarship

The proposed North American Free Trade Agreement between the United States, Canada, and Mexico is the logical and perhaps inevitable extension of the 1989 Free Trade Agreement between the United States and Canada. Both agreements are controversial, and massive public opposition exists in all three countries—for good reasons, as we shall see. The citizens of these three nations have never been provided with a credible explanation of the need for NAFTA. Contrary to the proclamations of NAFTA's proponents, there are no guarantees that the supposed benefits ofthe free trade agreement will be realized, nor is it clear who ...


Implications Of The Gatt Agreement For Iowa, John Kruse May 1993

Implications Of The Gatt Agreement For Iowa, John Kruse

CARD Briefing Papers

What is the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT)? The GATT may be best described as an ongoing process through which trade distortions among countries are defined and targeted for reduction. There have been seven previous GATT agreements over the years. The most recent GATT agreement represents the eighth round of trade negotiations and is often called the Uruguay Round in reference to Punta del Este, Uruguay, where the agenda was set in 1986. The Uruguay Round of trade negotiations was the first to focus directly on trade distortions in agriculture. Agricultural trade distortions were chosen primarily because of ...

The Application Of U.S. Antidumping Law To The Imports From The People's Republic Of China: Review Of Evolution And Need For Revolution, Li Yang Jan 1993

The Application Of U.S. Antidumping Law To The Imports From The People's Republic Of China: Review Of Evolution And Need For Revolution, Li Yang

LLM Theses and Essays

Despite the dramatic increase in trade between the U.S. and China since the normalization of relations between the countries in 1979, China is still confronted with U.S. laws that hinder trade. The most serious threat to Sino-U.S. trade is the U.S. antidumping law, which authorizes the imposition of a duty on imported merchandise that the Department of Commerce determines is sold at less than fair value, if the U.S. International Trade Commission determines the U.S. industry in that field is materially injured. This law and cases interpreting it are examined. With its low wage ...


The United States Export Control Laws And Regulations, Minzhi He Jan 1993

The United States Export Control Laws And Regulations, Minzhi He

LLM Theses and Essays

The current system of United States export controls began with the Export Control Act of 1949. Following World War II, Congress passed this legislation to establish a strategic embargo against communist nations in an attempt to control trade to further the national security and foreign policy interests of the West. In 1969, Congress reformed the export control laws by passing the Export Administration Act of 1969 – which contained no inherent limits. However, the increasing tension between the U.S. business interests and the national security and foreign policy interests made Congress once again alter the legislation and the Export Administration ...


The Antidumping Laws And Principles Under The Gatt: Protecting Protection, The “Dunkel Drafts” And After The Uruguay Round, Heejang Yoo Jan 1993

The Antidumping Laws And Principles Under The Gatt: Protecting Protection, The “Dunkel Drafts” And After The Uruguay Round, Heejang Yoo

LLM Theses and Essays

The antidumping laws of the U.S., Canada, Australia, European countries, and other developing countries are seen as protectionist of those nation’s local industries at the expense of foreign exporters. The fact that foreign exporters cannot obtain a meaningful judicial review of these antidumping laws only compounds the matter. This thesis urges nations to adopt multilateral competition-oriented antidumping polices and to abandon producer-oriented protectionist laws. Even if the notion of trade liberalization has been discredited under the GATT, the author advocates a return to such a goal in the context of antidumping laws. In reaching this conclusion, this thesis ...

The Earth As Eggshell Victim: A Global Perspective On Domestic Regulation, Alfred C. Aman Jan 1993

The Earth As Eggshell Victim: A Global Perspective On Domestic Regulation, Alfred C. Aman

Articles by Maurer Faculty

In the now famous case of Vosburg v. Putney, the Wisconsin Court enunciated the common law doctrine since known as the "eggshell skull" or "thin skull" rule: you take your victim as you find him. The thin skull rule is a productive starting point for a dialogue on the place of law in any effort to control (or reverse) the cumulative damage to the planet's ecosystem. Any such dialogue requires a global perspective that fuses international and domestic approaches to law. Environmental law must assess not only the level of assault against the earth, but also the risk of ...

Association Agreements Between The Ec And Central And Eastern European States, Helen E. Hartnell Jan 1993

Association Agreements Between The Ec And Central And Eastern European States, Helen E. Hartnell

Publications

Association agreements that establish increased trade, dialogue and cooperation between the EC and the countries of Central and Eastern Europe have proliferated in recent years. Yet still the relationship between the EC and countries in this region has been characterized by a significant degree of mutual misunderstanding and dissatisfaction. On one side, the high expectations of the Central and East European countries are reflected in their equally high disappointment levels vis-a-vis the EC. And on the other side, one senses that the EC grows weary of what it perceives as complaints and ingratitude.

Against this background, I propose to examine ...


International Trade Law And The Arbitration Of Administrative Law Matters: Farrel V. U.S. International Trade Commission, Ronald A. Brand Jan 1993

International Trade Law And The Arbitration Of Administrative Law Matters: Farrel V. U.S. International Trade Commission, Ronald A. Brand

Articles

With support from the executive branch, Congress, and the courts, arbitration has become an increasingly popular method of international dispute resolution. While agreements to arbitrate traditionally were frowned upon, particularly when the dispute involved certain “public law” or “statutory” matters, the situation has changed dramatically in the past few decades. United States courts now routinely order arbitration of disputes implicating important policy issues in securities, antitrust, Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (“RICO”), and employment law matters. By the end of the 1980’s, the presence of a public or “statutory” issue seemed no longer to be a distinguishing factor; arbitration ...
