Drawing upon exhaustive study in respectable govt files and the non-public papers of most sensible officers within the Roosevelt and Truman administrations, together with newly declassified fabric, Justin Hart takes the reader again to the sunrise of what Time-Life writer Henry Luce might famously name the "American century," whilst U.

The reduction of domestic support is a very sensitive issue for the US and the EU because opening agricultural markets might reduce subsidies paid to farmers and also lead to a loss of jobs in the agricultural sector. Sources The data gathered for this study consists mainly of primary and secondary sources. The official administrative documents (proposals, reports, briefing notes, and other internal governmental documents) and policy positions papers of interest groups are available as free downloads from several websites.

As broadly asserted in the literature, distributional arguments maintain that political pressures coming from interest groups are key determinants of foreign economic policy and international cooperation (Gourevitch, 1986; Grossman and Helpman, 2002; Hiscox, 2002; Milner, 1997; Moravcsik, 1997; Rogowski, 1989). Political leaders do care about the effects of trade agreements on their domestic constituencies because they do not want their party to lose financial support or seats at the next election.

In the meanwhile, several studies have integrated the veto players approach to the analysis of trade agreements. O’Reilly (2005), using a sample of cross-national time-series collection of 23 OECD countries in the period Framework for Analysis of Negotiations 21 1960–96, found out that large numbers of institutional veto players leads to a smaller percentage of changes in tariffs and non-tariff barriers. Henisz and Mansfield (2006) use statistical tests covering almost 60 countries between 1980 and 2000 to analyse the domestic determinants of commercial openness for democracies and autocracies.
