GBUS-503 Globalization: Challenges for Developed Countries
Fall for 2017-2018
This course will develop the theoretical and practical tools needed to participate in the design of public policy, conduct business-government relations, and formulate some aspects of corporate strategy in the industrial economies of Europe, Asia and North America. The course will focus on policies to strengthen the competitiveness of firms and nations; strategic trade theory and contemporary trade policy; forward pricing, fair pricing, and dumping; outward investment and the “Great Sucking Sound,” inward investment and the Who-Is-Us? debate; causes and reforms needed to deal with international financial crises; foreign acquisitions and national security; and policies to enhance the returns to workers and slow or prevent the growing disparity in income. While concentrating on contemporary problems of public policy, business-government relations, and corporate strategy in the United States, the course will contrast dilemmas in North America with the corresponding experience in Europe and Japan. The course provides a framework for understanding the challenges of globalization for developed countries (for business and economic issues in the developing countries, please refer to GBUS-454 AND GBUS-554, Business-Investment Negotiations in Developing and Transition Economies).
