The volume features recent work by Nobel Laureate Paul Samuelson and a thought provoking book, Global Trade and Conflicting National Interest by Ralph Gomory, the recently retired director of the Sloan Foundation, and New York University Professor William Baumol. Using different approaches, the three authors point to the ability of public and private sectors to change a country's comparative advantage in ways that can reduce the gains from trade for the United States or other advanced industrial countries. The volume also features a number of commentators who amplify, complement, or question the importance of the findings of the three authors. The conference on new thinking in international trade was made possible through a generous grant of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
