Overview

This is a critical review of recent U.S. trade policies that have failed to enforce sufficient reciprocity and overall trade balance. The authors explore the history of U.S. trade policy and seek to explain the reasons behind the failure of that policy. Their emphasis is on trade history, a synthesis of trade theory outlooks (from Adam Smith to post-WW II globalist thought), and most recently structural asymmetries and free riding that distort trade-investment flows and cause chronic external deficits.

Table of Contents

Most public service jobs require interpersonal contact that is either face-to-face or voice-to-voice - relational work that goes beyond testable job skills but is essential for job completion. This unique book focuses on this emotional labor and what it takes to perform it.The authors weave a powerful narrative of stories from the trenches gleaned through interviews, focus groups, and survey data. They go beyond the veneer of service delivery to the real, live, person-to-person interactions that give meaning to public service.For anyone who has ever felt apathetic toward government work, the words of caseworkers, investigators, administrators, attorneys, correctional staff, and 9/11 call-takers all show the human dimension of bureaucratic work and underscore what it means to work "with feeling."
