Overview

Job Creation, Job Destruction, and International Competition

Michael W. Klein, Scott Schuh, and Robert K. Triest

The authors produce insights that go beyond economy-wide or even sector-wide analyses of the effect of free trade. Their documentation of the disparate effects between and within narrowly defined industries shows that job churning characterizes the labor markets for manufacturing industries, and that changes in international factors have a much larger and more complex impact on labor markets than was previously thought.

Editorial Reviews

Industrial and Labor Relations Review
The release of this book, which painstakingly investigates the effect of international trade on the reallocation of jobs in the U.S. economy, provides welcome empirical evidence to inform the political debate.
