Who's Bashing Whom? Trade Conflict in High-Technology Industries


by Laura D'Andrea Tyson

"Laura Tyson's pathbreaking work on international competitiveness and trade, on manufacturing and technology issues, has improved our understanding of what it will take for America to prosper in the new global economy."

Bill Clinton

"... challenges the orthodoxy in a level-headed and well-reasoned way...required reading for those interested in U.S. trade policy ..."

Gene M. Grossman
Journal of Economic Literature

"A superbly argued, even courageous book ... Who's Bashing Whom? will alter the terms of policy debates about trade, competitiveness and technology."

Richard Lehne
American Political Science Review

Description

This study seeks to resolve the "free trade vs. managed trade" debate. It provides innovative recommendations for US policy based on detailed and rigorous case studies of high-technology trade conflicts between the United States, Japan and Europe in aircraft, telecommunications, electronics and supercomputers.The study addresses three key issues: What trade policy should the United States adopt to support its high-technology industries? What domestic policy initiatives are necessary to realize this goal? Are new international rules needed to reduce trade conflicts over high-technology industries? Tyson, formerly Chair of the President's Council of Economic Advisers, develops a "cautious activist" policy agenda to promote US competitiveness in high-technology sectors and to strengthen international rules to encourage trade and reduce conflicts among nations.
