In 1986–88 transfers were equivalent to 51 percent of all OECD farm production; 14 years later, after the implementation of Uruguay Round commitments, they accounted for 48 percent of all farm production (roughly $320 billion) (OECD 2003). Trade-distorting measures of industrial nations displace the agricultural exports of developing countries. 9 In nonagricultural goods there is also scope for further liberalization. The significant liberalization of manufacturing tariffs in developed countries over the past two decades might suggest that there is little to gain from further negotiations on industrial products.

For instance, tax policies (often advocated by international institutions) that effectively tax the informal sector less than the formal sector distort production in favor of the informal sector. In this context, trade regimes that reduce the international price of agricultural goods, typically produced by the informal sector, have a larger adverse effect than they would if tax policy were more neutral. A Fair Outcome Previous rounds of multilateral trade negotiations did not contain a principle of fairness.

The richest countries have done much better. The result is a widening in income disparities. So when we look at the population-weighted distribution, we have a drop in inequality, a drop in poverty, and a very favorable view. But behind that drop in inequality, the situation of many countries has worsened. Looking at an equal-weight distribution shows very clearly that the world is becoming more unequal, in the sense that many poor countries experienced negative growth over the past two decades.
