A World Without Walls: Freedom, Development, Free Trade and Global Governance

Mike Moore

"Mike Moore makes a strong case for the benefits of free trade and open markets. But he warns that global governance needs to be rethought to cope with the challenges of globalization. A wide ranging and thought-provoking book."
-George Soros, author of George Soros on Globalization

"I now understand better why I like Mike Moore so much. Mike, a man essentially educated by the brute force of real-life challenges, has produced in this book an honest account of his very fine tenure as WTO Director-General. Those curious about either the evolution of the multilateral trading system, or interesting leaders, will find this book very enjoyable."
-Ernesto Zedillo, Former President of Mexico

"Mike Moore is that rare politician: a doer who is also a thinker. He pulled off Doha, putting the bumbling failure of Seattle behind us. In this fascinating book, he demonstrates that he can also speak to intellectuals, placing trade liberalization, indeed globalization, into an ambitious but realistic framework that can serve as an effective antidote to the anti-globalizers. And he does it elegantly and articulately. New Zealand has two great voices: Kiri Te Kanawa and Mike Moore."
-Jagdish Bhagwati, author of Free Trade Today

Mike Moore's reflection on his time as Director-General of the World Trade Organization is an important addition to the great globalization debate. Moore explains how a boy who left school at fifteen to work in a slaughterhouse came to head an organization charged with bringing rules and order to the world's trading system. He explains the thinking behind his reforms which helped the WTO move on from the debacle of Seattle to the successful Doha meeting and offers a robust and passionate defense of the principles of free trade.

Mike Moore, a former Prime Minister of New Zealand, has enjoyed a long and distinguished career in politics. As Minister of Overseas Trade and Marketing, he led trade missions to Australia, Japan, China, India, Pakistan and Turkey. Subsequently he has served as Minister of Foreign Affairs and, until August, 2002, as Director General of the World Trade Organization. Moore has long been an active participant in international discussions on trade liberalization and has received numerous awards, including the New Zealand 1990 Commemoration Medal and New Zealand's highest honor, the Order of New Zealand. He lives in Geneva.
