Iron Triangles and Revolving Doors: Cases in U.S. Foreign Economic Policymaking

Synopsis

In a rapidly shrinking world, governments everywhere find themselves increasingly obliged to deal with international economic issues. This unique volume provides a close-up view of the decisionmaking process within the U.S. establishment as it has wrestled with a series of highly controversial economic issues in recent years. The book presents a model of the U.S. foreign economic policy decisionmaking process and details five case studies, each covering a well-publicized economic issue--including the U.S.-Canada Free Trade Agreement, the FSX fighter co-development, and the Toshiba-Kongsberg Affair.
