Example text

This presupposes a renewed interest in the role of monopolistic market forms in international trade. Analysis along such lines was performed in the late 1930's and the 1940's following the work in micro economic theory by Chamberlin and Joan Robinson.

They might lead to better control over markets and/or more efficient ways of organizing production. This is, however, not the same as saying that they also are beneficial for governments and consumers in the host countries.
