In addition, the paper also looks at a case study of the steel industry in order to show how international trade affects industries.

The Growth of Third World Countries
Case Study - The Steel Industry

From the Paper:

"Much of the information that must be addressed when it comes to subsidies and countervailing duties deals with multilateral trade negotiations. These are generally designed to help Third World countries develop more economically and have changed much of the structure of international investment and trade (Diaz-Alejandro & Helleiner, 1987). Analyzing these negotiations and looking at the economic effects that they have shows that many of the trade agreements have slowed down the development in Third World countries (Ho, 1998). This can be seen by the fact that these trade negotiations do not address the link between trade and debt or issues like primary commodity trades (Ho, 1998). Because of this, the liberalization that is seen between countries that are already developed and countries that are just developing is very unequal. "
