This paper examines some critical but often neglected aspects of the theoretical case for and against industrial tariffs. It examines in great detail historical and contemporary evidence on the relationship between trade policy (especially tariffs) and economic development and critically examines some key principles underlying the NAMA negotiations - and the WTO in general - and questions the whole premises upon which the current NAMA negotiations are conducted.
