About this product
- DescriptionThe advances in transportation and communications have caused and supported the emergence of a global ecomy. The small ecomies are especially attractive to multinational companies for siting of production facilities because of lower costs and friendlier governmental attitudes. The emerging international ecomy has had an impact on third world countries in many ways. In general, international linkages and local ecomic sovereignty are inversely related. However, participation in the international ecomy is needed to balance the import/export flow used to improve the conditions in the smaller countries. Although external ecomic linkages are t risk-free, it appears that a certain amount of foreign involvement is necessary for successful ecomic development and improvement of conditions for small emerging nations. This work uses the Caribbean nations as a laboratory to show the various aspects of international linkages. This is especially appropriate because of the proximity of these countries to the North American markets.
