Extensive coverage of the impact of rade policies on the various functional areas provide adequate insight to help corporate planners manage in a turbulent and changing economic environment."-- Journal of Management "The most important of the contributions in this book deals with the subject of how the changes in trade policies influence 'various expressions of corporate performance.'...Given the importance that trade barriers have acquired in view of the negotiations for the Uraguay Round and the global trend toward regionalized trade blocks, the papers in this section could potentiallybe very important for a better understanding of the impact of economic policies on corporate management."-- The International Trade Journal

Summaries
Long Description
This book provides a bridge between actual, and expected, U.S. trade policies and the financial, marketing, operational, organizational, and strategic aspects of corporate business policy. It grew out of the first annual International Business Education and Research Program (IBEAR) Research and Management Workshop held at USC. Individual papers were written by different authors and have been heavily edited by Professors Agmon and Hekman who have also added a general introduction,introductions to the parts, and linking sections between chapters. This book is the only source for the ideas it presents since the papers have not, and will not, be published elsewhere.

This collection provides a bridge between U.S. trade policies (actual and expected) and the financial, marketing, operations, organizational, and strategic aspects of corporate business policy, presenting analysis of trade policy and its volatility, and exploring its effects on the functional activities of corporations.
