International Trade and Competition
These case studies from the Harvard Business School develop a conceptual framework for students of management and provide an exploration of international trade as seen from the perspective of general managers. Assuming a multidisciplinary approach, this text explores main sources of international competitive advantages for firms. It aims to provide students with an understanding of key institutions and regulations of international commerce - GATT and US trade law. This edition features many new, topical cases, and provides a greater focus on non-American firms. There is also more material on foreign country conditions and government policies.
