The author discusses the reasons for the difference between the International Trade Organization ("ITO") and the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade ("GATT"), the reasons for the ITO's failure, and reflects on international trade policy that would be in effect if the ITO had been successful. The author concludes that further inquiry must be made into the reasons for the original ITO's failure and the world's suitability for a new model ITO to provide any new ITO initiative an opportunity to succeed.
