In general, this category aims to provide researchers, policy analysts and economic planners WEB links to sources of information as well as discussion fora related to the economics of International Agricultural Trade and of Environmentally Sustainable Agriculture. In particular, the editing of this category is from the perspective of a business economist concerned with the impact of globalization of trade and services on firms as a result of the Uruguay Round General Agreement on Tariff and Trade. Although in agreement with the economic theories presented in support of such Agreement, it is foreseen that, in practice, the transition (or failure thereof) by the formerly protected domestic agribusiness firms into globally competitive industry players may and have caused households considerable suffering.
