by Joseph E. Stiglitz

It claims that trade liberalization creates unstable economic conditions, decreased revenues from tariffs and poverty which translates into compromised health care. The author criticizes intellectual property provisions of trade agreements such as the Uruguay Round Agreement of 1994, those limiting access to generic medicines and parts of the bilateral trade agreements.
