Banana wars: the anatomy of a trade dispute.

Book cover for Banana wars: the anatomy of a trade dispute.

Description

In April 2001, the EU and the USA announced the end of a trade dispute over the sale of bananas into the EU market. The EU's allocation of import licences had been found to violate World Trade Organization (WTO) rules and to discriminate against suppliers from Latin America. This book examines the issues surrounding the dispute, in particular: the dependence of small Caribbean economies on European banana markets; the role of the private sector in influencing public policy; the relation between banana trade and the political tensions of the EU's Common Agricultural Policy; the domestic political influence of banana companies in the USA; and the role of the WTO and its settlement of trade disputes. The book has 10 chapters and a subject index.
