Patterns of World Trade by Andreas Grotewold
- This book sets forth how the current network
of world trade has evolved and how the world is tied together
economically by the flow of trade. It also explains in plain language
how trade is related to economic development and how the trade
of regions is related to their industrial structure. Regions not
fully integrated with the world economy have remained underdeveloped.
World trade comprises the network of commodity shipments throughout
the world. It does not depend on the division of the world into
nations. An explanation of inter-national trade and development
must be based on an analysis of inter-regional trade and development.
