Nation-States in Continental Markets: The Political Geography of Free Trade.
Merrett, Christopher D.
Journal of Geography, v96 n2 p105-112 Mar-Apr 1997
Argues that neoclassical conceptions of political geography separate economic from political processes and therefore ignore the consequences of economic policies. Uses discourse theory to show how the pretensions of objectivity embedded in neoclassical trade theory obscure these consequences. Briefly reviews trade theory from Adam Smith to the present. (MJP)
