    My early work was focussed on international trade and payments theory and its relevance for the understanding of the international economy. This led to asking how much of income differentials were accounted for by differences in factor endowments, whether racial discrimination could be explained in terms of a trade model and how highly restrictionist trade regimes really functioned. This led, first, to the effort to quantify domestic resource costs, and second, to a concern with the broader costs of individual restrictions, encompassed in part by the concept of rent-seeking.

    An opportunity to analyse the Korean experience with trade and growth then led to questions about that interrelationship, on which I continue to work.
