COPYRIGHT 2005 Aspen Publishers, Inc. Also circulated as Policy Research Working Paper 3560, World Bank, Washington DC, April 2005. Economists have influenced the trade policy agenda for establishing multilateral trade rules, disciplines and procedures and for negotiating most-favored nation and preferential reductions in trade barriers and subsidies, in addition to affecting the agenda for unilateral policy reform. These roles are considered in turn, before focusing on the economists' contribution though quantifying the extent and effects of existing trade distortions and alternative reform initiatives. Many trade distortions remain, however, so the paper then looks at where trade economists' efforts in agenda-setting need to be focused in the years ahead.
