Summary Read First Chapter image missing

This book provides an overview of the recently implemented Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement and highlights its implications for manufacturing, engineering, and technological firms and for service industries. Because the perspective is global as well as regional, the concerns of both multinational and smaller businesses are addressed.

The text focuses on how the economic environment in both countries will change as a result of the agreement, and how businesses should respond to those changes. It also discusses past, present, and future trade relations between Canada and the United States and between North America and Europe.

Contributors to this volume include academic authorities Richard G. Lipsey, Alan M. Rugman, Steven Blank, and Jeffrey J. Schott; Canadian and U.S. Business leaders G. Firman Bentley, Daniel Walsh, and Pierre S. Pettigrew; and government officials Gerald E. Shannon, James Tarrant, Thomas M. T. Niles, and Richard M. McGahey.

Fredric C. Menz is Professor of Economics and Director of the Center for Canadian-U.S. Business Studies at Clarkson University. Sarah A. Stevens is Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at St. Lawrence University.
