image of Trade and Development Report 2017

The Trade and Development Report (TDR), launched in 1981, is issued every year for the annual session of the Trade and Development Board. The Report analyses current economic trends and major policy issues of international concern, and makes suggestions for addressing these issues at various levels. This year’s Report focuses on the challenges for achieving inclusive growth in an era of austerity, hyper globalization and financial fragility. It includes chapters on robotics, gender and employment, finance and inequality, and the growing market power of non-financial corporations. It concludes by calling for Global New Deal, and the sorts of policy components it must include in light of the analyses provided.




The Trade and Development Report 2017 was prepared by a team led by Richard Kozul-Wright, Director of the Division on Globalization and Development Strategies. The team members included Diana Barrowclough, Stephanie Blankenburg, David Bicchetti, Rachid Bouhia, Elissa Braunstein, C.P. Chandrasekhar, Shaun Ferguson, Padmashree Gehl Sampath, Jayati Ghosh, Ricardo Gottschalk, Alex Izurieta, Pierre Kohler, Jörg Mayer, Nicolas Maystre, Stephanie Seguino and Edgardo Torija Zane.
