This article is an introduction to the Fordham International Law Journal, Volume 29, Number 2. The journal issue addresses the challenge of trade and developing countries. The most powerful countries have sound financial, political, environmental, and social reasons to promote sustainable economic growth throughout the world. Nevertheless, the policies used to do so have failed or have, in some instances, been designed in such a hypocritical way that they could not possibly succeed in their ostensible purposes. The issue offers a useful contribution to the debate about what works and does not work in promoting development.
