Trade Liberalisation and Competitive Markets

Shanker Singham

General Theory of Trade and Competition is the first academic or practitioner text book to establish a general theory of trade and competition and attempts to bring these two disciplines back together.  Shanker Singham demonstrates that there is indeed a powerful interface between these two areas and that by understanding this interface practitioners, be they in governments, companies or law and economics firms can succeed in trade negotiations as well as build up support for free trade principles in a time when they are being increasingly challenged.  By noting that consumer welfare is enhanced where trade liberalization is accompanied by competitive markets and property rights protection, the author articulates an overall vision in which future policymakers can frame a different kind of trade debate.

Shanker Singham is the Director of Economic Policy and Prosperity Studies at the Legatum Institute, the Chairman of the Legatum Institute Special Trade Commission and the Chairman and CEO of the Competere Group.  Formerly with two Global law firms, most recently head of global market access at Squire Patton Boggs, he is one of the world's leading trade and economics professionals in his field. 

He has written over 100 book chapters and articles and is widely quoted in the media, including being interviewed on CNBC, Sky News, BBC, Voice of America and quoted in the The Financial Times, Reuters, The Economist, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, The Times and The Daily Telegraph.  He has been an advisor to sixty governments around the world as well as to corporate and other shareholder interests.
