Críticas:

"Trading Industries, Trading Regions fills an important gap in the literature on trade, which has tended to be removed from real people and real places. This book addresses vividly the process of international competitions and its effects on the development of regions in the United States. The authors' knowledge of trade, the international distribution of economic activity, and regional economic development blends to create a powerful book. Just as foreign competitors have seen it a advantageous to become "American," American industries have become international. Conflicts and paradoxes proliferate in the quest of communities for new jobs to offset the inevitable loss in jobs as firms become ever more productive and competitive. This book helps greatly to shed light on important dimensions of the puzzle of international competition as it affects peoples' jobs in communities throughout the country. The individual chapters are important and first-rate case studies. The industries examined--autos, steel, machine tools, pharmaceuticals, and insurance--are significant and the contributions contain a wealth of detailed information about each sector that serves to inform us all about how we got where we are, and where we might go from here. International competition also affects local policies and economic bases in this country, as competition among places in the US also has become the norm. The international marketplace is a fact of economic life for all places in America, and the contributions in this book both explain how this predicament began and help to point the way to the future." --Edward J. Malecki, University of Florida "Trading Industries, Trading Regions is on the cutting edge of issues concerning the impacts of trade on regional economic development and employment in the United States. The well-integrated collection of chapters provides a fresh approach to better understanding how global economic competition is influencing specific industries and localities. Challenging traditional free trade arguments, the authors reveal the important role being played by national trade and industrial policies in the growth and decline of regional economies. A 'must read' for academics and policymakers alike!" --Rod Erickson, Ph.D., Penn State University "This book offers a provocative alternative to the neoclassical thinking that typically pervades standard academic texts on international trade. It is important that both graduate and undergraduate students receive exposure to revisionist perspectives based on actual empirical studies at the level of specific industries and regions. The strength of this book lies in its ability to capture important themes in the debate on managed trade, and to alert students of international business and regional science to the potential weaknesses of conventional theories of trade, investment, and competition." --Alan MacPherson, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of Geography (OR) Associate Director, Canada-United States Trade Center, State University of New York at Buffalo "International trade and regional development are of fundamental concern in an economic geography class. The way these issues are dealt with in this book encourages discussion. The students want to know how international trade will effect their own job opportunities and those who live in their area." --Harold Brodsky, Ph.D., University of Maryland at College Park "I would highly recommend this book to those interested in post World War II industrial development in the USA. In additon, for those teaching courses on industrial geography or world economic geography, it would provide case studies for the discussion of the economic transformation of postindustrialized countries and the link between international agreements on tariffs and trade and the shifting geography of produciton-all that at a very nice price!" --C Pavlik, Department of Geography, The University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA, Envionment and Planning A ""Trading Industries, Trading Regions" fills an important gap in the literature on trade, which has tended to be removed from real people and real places.

Reseña del editor:

Analyzing the impact of trade on regional development and employment, this volume presents a set of industry case studies in which the international locational choices of industries are linked to metropolitan and regional growth patterns. They attempt to show how the United States has been served by domestic firms whose national and international locational patterns are shifting, the result of strategic planning as well as intervention by government agencies.

Together, these studies pose a considerable challenge to the free trade prescription, suggesting that success in trade is fundamentally shaped by governmental intervention. They also show the adverse effects and adjustment costs that entire regions can suffer, economic and social costs which must be weighed against purported gains from free trade. Each set of authors offers an alternative political and economic course for the United States and other nations to follow, tailored to the specifics of the industry under consideration.
