Trade and the Environment: Does Environmental Diversity Detract from the Case for Free Trade?

Bhagwati, Jagdish N.; Srinivasan, T. N.

"The potency of the contention that fair trade or level playing fields
constitute a precondition for Free Trade and that, therefore, harmonization of
domestic policies across trading countries is necessary before Free Trade can be
embraced to one's advantage, should not be underestimated today. It is nowhere
more manifest, and compelling in its policy appeal, than in the area of
environmental standards."
