Description - Impediments to Trade in Services by Tony Warren
The economic impact of barriers to world trade and investment in services has been thought impossible to measure.

This book challenges the view that impediments to services trade cannot be quantified, detailing how these barriers can be measured and their significance estimated.

The authors explain how the measures were calculated and show how the results could be used in sophisticated economic models. The final part of the book looks at current issues in services negotiations in the World Trade Organisation and the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation forum.
