ABSTRACT
The article discusses the implications of U.S. protectionist trade policies on ethanol like subsidies and tariffs. It cites the environmental and economic benefits of ethanol, including its ability to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. An economic perspective on the imposition of tariffs is offered. It also suggests to include ethanol in the Doha Round of international trade negotiations agenda of the World Trade Organization (WTO) as an appropriate forum to discuss the issue.
