Product Standards, Exports and Employment

An Analytical Study


Part of the Contributions to Economics book series (CE)

About this book


This book makes an analytical study of implications of the new set of non-tariff barriers that are forthcoming on the exports of the developing countries in the disguise of quality regulations and environmental standards. It argues that in the present era of globalization, with technological revolution in the West raising the demand for skill-intensive, high value-addition and high-quality goods, export-led growth may not be a poverty-reducing strategy in the short run.
