Abstract (Swedish)
The debate on the relationship between trade and growth is ongoing and the question is if the GATT/WTO contributes to higher trade flows. In this paper, the modern literature relating to trade and growth will be reviewed, as well as the modern literature on the GATT/WTO and trade. Then, I examine how growth has been affected by the GATT/WTO by looking at growth for member countries for a few years prior to joining and then comparing this with growth a few years after joining the organisation. To summarize my findings, joining the GATT/WTO seems to be associated with an increase in economic growth.
