The 1947 GATT lowered trade barriers and made it cheaper and easier to ship goods across borders. In 1988 world merchandise trade was 20 times larger than in 1947; average tariffs dropped from 40 percent to 5 percent. A 1994 GATT revision created the WTO, which has the power to enforce international trade rules. Goals of the WTO are: (1) to help the free flow of trade, (2) help negotiate further opening of markets, and (3) settle trade disputes. WTO agreements are contracts committing members to fair and open trade policies. The WTO dispute settlement system is the spine of the global trading system. The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund have also helped expand globalization.
