The Twilight Of The China's Decade?, Rett R. Ludwikowski Jan 2016

The Twilight Of The China's Decade?, Rett R. Ludwikowski

Scholarly Articles and Other Contributions

The main goal of this article is to present to the European reader the implications of the crisis of the Chinese banking system which peaked in August 2015, and triggered a period of high volatility in the US. stockmarket. As a result, trade relations between China and the US. have deteriorated, which raises the question of whether the Chinese economic system will implode and contribute to the global crisis, or whether it can be controlled by Beijing?

The article assumes two things: that subsidies are at the core of US. criticism of Chinese trade priorities; and that to understand recent ...

Traditional Paradisms For The Causes Of War Applied To The International Trading System: Nation-State Institutions In A World Of Market-States, Antonio F. Perez

Scholarly Articles and Other Contributions

The first object of this paper, therefore, is to consider in very general terms the intellectual history of the study of the relation between trade and peace, using two key texts from the beginning and the end of the Cold War - first, Kenneth Waltz's "Man, the State, and War: A Theoretical Analysis" 3; and, second, Philip Bobbitt's "The Shield of Achilles: War, Peace, and the Course of History.

The second part of this paper will argue that Waltz's normative commitments are revealed in the order of his presentation and Bobbitt's normative commitments are revealed in the ...


International Antitrust At The Crossroads: The End Of Antitrust History Or The Clash Of Competition Policy Civlizations, Antonio F. Perez Jan 2002

International Antitrust At The Crossroads: The End Of Antitrust History Or The Clash Of Competition Policy Civlizations, Antonio F. Perez

Scholarly Articles and Other Contributions

This Review will suggest a theoretical explanation for the essentially pragmatic conclusion that the United States should continue to oppose negotiations at the WTO. This explanation has the virtue of drawing on the special quasi-constitutional role of antitrust policy in U.S. history, one that is in fact deeply connected to the political economy of U.S. federalism and which, therefore, leaves less room for U.S. acquiescence in the institutionalization of competition policy at the WTO than does even the pragmatic argument for continued U.S. opposition to multilateral and institutional approaches.

This argument draws on the continuing centrality ...


The International Recognition Of Judgments: The Debate Between Private And Public Law Solutions, Antonio F. Perez Jan 2001

The International Recognition Of Judgments: The Debate Between Private And Public Law Solutions, Antonio F. Perez

Scholarly Articles and Other Contributions

This article explores institutional alternatives for balancing the competing trade and non-trade concerns at the national and global levels in relation to the recognition and enforcement of judgments. It argues against a private international law convention of the kind that is currently being negotiated at the Hague Conference on Private International Law, and against quasi-constitutional and constitutional solutions, such as those employed by the European Union and the United States. Rather, the article argues that managing the tensions between trade and non-trade values and between state autonomy and globally established standards can best be achieved through a supplementary agreement in ...


Wto And Un Law, Antonio F. Perez Jan 1998

Wto And Un Law, Antonio F. Perez

Scholarly Articles and Other Contributions

This Article argues that the U.S. and EC views of the national security interests exceptions reflect competing conceptions of the WTO legal order. Under the first, the WTO is viewed as merely an agreement between states governing a limited issue area, the disciplining of protectionist policies, under which other issue areas are reserved to sovereign state decisionmaking or, alternatively, whatever other international institutions states have separately granted competence for management of the issue. Under this view, the United States might well argue that its Helms-Burton sanctions are outside the jurisdiction of the WTO and instead within the jurisdiction of ...

Exports, Banking And Antitrust: The Export Trading Company Act: A Modest Tool For Export Promotion, George E. Garvey Jan 1984

Exports, Banking And Antitrust: The Export Trading Company Act: A Modest Tool For Export Promotion, George E. Garvey

Scholarly Articles and Other Contributions

After discussing briefly some of the statute's economic implications and limitations, this article will analyze the more significant provisions of the Export Trading Company Act. The Act only recently has been implemented so there is insufficient experience or empirical basis for critiquing the performance of the enforcement agencies. It is not premature, however, to suggest that all administrative and enforcement policies should foster a limited role for government in the operation of export markets. Therefore, regulators empowered to exempt firms from potential antitrust liability should recognize the dual problems inherent in their regulatory activities: They must not impede the ...


The Foreign Trade Antitrust Improvements Act Of 1981, George E. Garvey Jan 1982

The Foreign Trade Antitrust Improvements Act Of 1981, George E. Garvey

Scholarly Articles and Other Contributions

This article will explore the effects of the antitrust laws on international trade and the probable reasons for any adverse impact. It will then consider the primary alternative legislative proposal intended to remedy the perceived antitrust barrier to trade, the Export Trade Association Act of 1981. Finally, the article examines the responsiveness of the Antitrust Improvements Act to the problems and the potential hazards of an altered antitrust policy.
