About this product
- DescriptionIn a rapidly shrinking world, governments everywhere find themselves increasingly obliged to deal with international ecomic issues. When dealing with such issues, their processes of decisionmaking prove strikingly different from those employed in the handling of political or strategic problems. This unique volume by Raymond Vern, Debora L. Spar, and Glenn Tobin provides a close-up view of the decisionmaking process within the U.S. establishment as it has wrestled with a series of greatly publicized ecomic issues in recent years. The book synthesizes a literature that has been accumulating over three decades, deriving from this literature a model of the processes of decisionmaking in the field of U.S. foreign ecomic policy. Five detailed case studies are presented, each covering a major ecomic plan or agreement that raised significant controversy. Since the process by which ecomic decisions are reached involves institutions and characteristics quite different from those encountered in political decisionmaking, Iron Triangles and Revolving Doors emphasizes the persistent regularities to be found in the United States when it comes to ecomic decisionmaking. The opening chapter offers a model of the characteristics of the foreign ecomic policymaking process. The next five chapters examine the U.S.-Canada Free Trade Agreement; the battle over the codevelopment of the FSX fighter plane with Japan; the problem of international debt and the creation of the Brady plan; and U.S. trade policy and security export controls in light of the Toshiba-Kongsberg affair. Each of these cases is linked to the overall model of U.S. ecomic policy presented by the authors. This volume will be an excellent text for university or graduate courses in foreign ecomic policy, U.S. foreign policy, and international political ecomy. It will also be of interest to political scientists, ecomists, government officials, policy analysts, and others looking for insights into ecomic decisionmaking.
