The European Community and the United States: Economic Relations

Synopsis

Gianaris examines trade and investment relations and related economic policies as they affect development trends in Europe and the United States. Particular emphasis is placed on the potential effects of such developments as the integration of Western Europe in 1992, recent events in Eastern Europe, German reunification, and the potential for stronger economic cooperation in North America. Gianaris examines the impact of these issues on a wide range of economic matters including the relationship between the private and public sectors, the openness of markets, the degree of industrialization, fiscal and monetary policy, business regulation and taxation, joint ventures, and mergers and acquisitions.
