    However, researchers at thinks tanks such as the Overseas Development Institute argue the risks are outweighed by the benefits and that what is needed is careful regulation. During recent legislative debate over a professional reform bill, Alan Shatter--then the Minister of Justice in Ireland--publicly called this study, in its earlier form as a dissertation, "marvellous," and stated that it "should be compulsory reading for us all. Yet such concerns could be addressed through regulation and by a universal service obligations in contracts, or in the licensing, to prevent such a situation from occurring. Trade liberalization can benefit stronger economies but put weaker ones at a greater disadvantage. In order to continue multilateral economic liberalization, these regulatory barriers have been the object of trade negotiations, as have the further lowering of tariffs and quantitative restrictions.

    With the help of analyses and case studies from academics, regulators and trade experts, this book explores the scope and limits of WTO legal principles to promote domestic regulatory reform. This is also supported by the anthropologist Trouillot who argues that the current market system is not a free market at all, but instead a privatized market IE, markets can be 'bought'. The institutional, legal and regulatory influence of the General Agreement on Trade in Services GATS on domestic economic policymaking is attracting increasing attention in the academic and policymaking literature. Though it creates winners and losers, the broad consensus among economists is that free trade is a net gain for society.

    Legal essays delve deep into each of the main domestic regulation principles which trade negotiators have been seeking to craft to reduce the impact of regulatory diversity, to simplify procedures and make them more transparent and to avoid unnecessary complexity or disguised restrictions. This shift in multilateral trade talks has changed the nature of the negotiations. Liberalization offers the opportunity for the sector to compete internationally, contributing to GDP growth and generating foreign exchange. Traditionally, international trade law and regulation has been analysed primarily from the trade-in-goods perspective.
