INTERNATIONAL TRADE AND MIGRATION
I had recently completed a paper dealing with the trade-migration relationship. The paper draws upon half a dozen disciplines (first time I have ever tried to do this) such as economics, law, public choice, sociology, international relations etc. But, the student law review editors seem to be having trouble comprehending much of it. It is a little too long for a peer-refereed journal and I would still prefer to have it appear in a law review. I shall post in Sections here. I very much welcome any suggestions anyone may have to make it more suitable for the second year law review students. The Abstract follows (I shall post Sections I and II in a day).

JAGDEEP S. BHANDARI
This paper examines the inter-relationship between migration of persons and international trade in goods and services. Trade and immigration policies, their effects and inter-dependence are examined from a variety of viewpoints across several disciplines, and an attempt is made to offer the outline of a synthesis.
The relationship between trade and migration policies is of immediate relevance to policy-makers. Unless such policies were coordinated, lawmakers might find that the desired effects of say, immigration policy might well be undone by independently chosen trade policy and conversely. The experiences of the United States United States
Careful examination of the inter-relationship between these policies is desirable in order to assess the differing policy responses chosen across continents.
