Library Journal - Library JournalMoran explores linkages between U.S. economic performance and our foreign trade and investment policy. He asserts that improved U.S. economic growth will allow us to pursue a more cooperative stance in the global economy. The danger is that a confrontational trade policy will substitute for needed domestic economic reform. This short work by a professor at the School of Foreign Service of Georgetown University perceptively examines the broad problems and parameters of U.S. trade policy. The details are best found in other books, notably Robert Kuttner's The End of Laissez-Faire ( LJ 2/15/91). Moran's book is recommended for libraries wishing to have an accessible introduction to the topic.-- Richard C. Schiming, Mankato State Univ., Minn.
