In this, his final book, Gavin Boyd has brought together a distinguished group of experts on the nature and extent of transatlantic policy coordination and its implication for corporate strategy. This remarkably relevant set of papers offers a discussion on the economic and financial linkage between Europe and North America, as well as the trade and investment rules governing this interaction.
The complexities of the transatlantic relationship are analyzed in chapters dealing with: financial integration, transfer of knowledge and technology, transatlantic trade and corporate partnership, transatlantic trade and investment links, simultaneous intra-regional as well as transatlantic trade and the implications for antitrust policy of the activities of multinational enterprises, structural positioning and macroeconomic policy coordination, international interdependence and the role of entrepreneurship, and the reform of international financial markets.
Exploring growing transatlantic trade and investment linkages within their institutional contexts, this timely book will be invaluable to academics and researchers with an interest in international business and international economics. Practicing trade lawyers and policymakers will also find the book to be a fascinating read.
