Contents:
The U.S.-Japan semiconductor trade conflict / Douglas A. Irwin -- The rise and fall of big steel's influence on U.S. trade policy / Michael O. Moore -- Making sense of the 1981 automobile VER : economics, politics, and the political economy of protection / Douglas R. Nelson -- Import protection for U.S. textiles and apparel : viewed from the domestic perspective / J. Michael Finger and Ann Harrison -- Do precedent and legal argument matter in the lumber CVD cases? / Joseph P. Kalt -- The political economy of the export enhancement program for wheat / Bruce L. Gardner --Agricultural interest group bargaining over the North American Free Trade Agreement / David Orden -- The effect of import source on the determinants and impacts of antidumping suit activity / Robert W. Staiger and Frank A. Wolak -- Implications of the results of individual studies / Anne O. Krueger.
Summary: This clear, concise summary of the in-depth analyses presented in The Political Economy of American Trade Policy examines the level, form, and evolution of American trade protection. In case studies of trade barriers imposed during the 1980s to help the steel, semiconductor, automobile, lumber, wheat, and textile and apparel industries, the contributors trace the evolution of efforts to obtain protection, protectionist measures, and their results. A chapter assessing the common themes that emerge from the studies concludes that the focus of current trade law is exclusively on the individual protection-seeking industries, with little regard for indirect effects on using industries or for consumers. Reform could usefully take these effects into account. This volume will interest policymakers, business executives, and anyone interested in trade policy formulation and practice.
