Sample text

6 In the United States, the process of rolling back the destructive rates enacted in the infamous Smoot-Hawley tariff of 1930 began as early as 1933, when Franklin Roosevelt became president. By the end of World War II, bilateral negotiations with a variety of trading partners had already reduced average tariff rates by 44 per cent of their 1930 levels (Husted and Melvin, 1998). 7 This is not the same as wages because it also reflects labour skills, motivation, and other factors affecting productivity.

While multilateral negotiations have helped to reduce tariffs and other trade barriers in the period since World War II, there have been no similar multilateral efforts in the area of immigration policy. Rather, immigration restrictions have continued to be formulated at the national level or, in the case of the European Union, at the regional level. In Europe and the United States, ‘guest workers’ and illegal immigrants supply an increasing share of unskilled labour, thus effectively capping the earnings of native-born unskilled workers.
