Abstract

It is generally accepted that the depression years of the 1930s were the most overtly protectionist era of the twentieth century. Depressionary pressures induced most trading nations to become more inward-looking. By contrast, the post-war era, certainly until the oil shock of 1973, has been a period of sustained growth of output and trade. In part this can be directly attributed to the dismantling of protective barriers erected during the inter-war years, while in part it is attributable to the unprecedented technological development which has taken place.
