DUBOSE BOWLING GREEN STATE UNIVERSITY General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) GATT CAME INTO EXISTENCE on January 1, 1948, with 23 original members, in the aftermath of WORLD WAR II as part of an attempt by the victorious allies to structure an economic world order that would better suit the realities of post-world-war life. It was ended at the conclusion of the Uruguay Round of talks in 1994 to be replaced by the WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION (WTO), by which time it had grown to over 125 members, regulated some 90 percent of international trade, and had succeeded in reducing average international trade tariffs from 40 percent to about 4 percent. The period prior to WORLD WAR I had seen increasing GLOBALIZATION and liberalization of international trade in a world system featuring strong nation-state alliances buttressed by the colonization of much of the third world. However, the war itself and the settlement that followed it did much to destroy that system and the institutional replacement for international alliancesthe League of Nationswas not strong enough to prevent nations relapsing increasingly into a series of protectionist measures that further diminished confidence, and then contributed to reduced economic growth.
