Overview

What trade policies should the United States adopt to support its high-technology industries? What domestic policy initiatives are necessary to realize this goal? What new multilateral rules are required to contain high-technology trade conflict between the United States and its trading partners? Does the time-honored distinction between free trade and managed trade make sense in high-technology industries, which are actively promoted and protected by national governments around the world?

This volume answers these questions on the basis of detailed and rigorous case studies of trade disputes between the United States, Japan, and Europe in aircraft, semiconductors, supercomputers, telecommunications, and other electronics products. Tyson proposes a "cautious activist" policy agenda to promote US competitiveness in high-technology sectors and to strengthen multilateral rules governing high-technology trade.
