Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Countertrade is a little-known aspect of foreign trade whereby the goods of one nation exchange, not for money, but for the goods and services of another nation. Schaeffer, now CEO of his own investment banking firm and former assistant to Secretary of Defense Harold Brown, makes a convincing case for the importance of countertrade, and spotlights the U.S. government's deficiencies in supporting countertrade with either effective policies or programs. While not deeply theoretical, the book's case studies of different nations and companies provide a useful introduction to this area of increasing economic importance. The nontechnical treatment makes this a recommended volume for all libraries.-- Richard C. Schiming, Mankato State Univ., Minn.
