This chapter outlines some general principles about the role of law in the world economy, shows how Hudec anticipated them in his work on trade, and demonstrates how these principles can help us deal with contemporary issues in international economic law. It shows that Hudec's general analysis can still be used to deal with current issues in the area of trade and development, in the operation of councils and committees in the WTO and their potential for opening more policy space for developing countries, and even for understanding the role of law in the EU.
