U. S. Governmental Policies Toward Technology Transfer by U. S. Business to Developing Nations : Should the U. S. Government Do More? (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from U. S. Governmental Policies Toward Technology Transfer by U. S. Business to Developing Nations: Should the U. S. Government Do More? International technology transfer, the process of trans ferring a product and/or the know-how and capability needed to use a body of existing technical knowledge, has become an increasingly important topic in recent years. Although the subject has been a concern since World War II, it was usually discussed with different terminology and within a military strategic context. However, as the U. S. Became more involved in international economic relations, the term assumed broader implications. Today, the subject is dis cussed within the context of (1) national security or the east-west aspect of technology transfer to American adversaries, (2) U. 8. Economic competitiveness, sometimes entitled the north-north aspect of technology transfer among the industrialized nations, and (3) assistance to developing nations or the north-south aspects of tech nology transfer from the industrialized nations to the Third World. The technology transfer process is embedded in trade, investment, and foreign assistance programs. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
