Description

Originally published in 2003, North American Linkages is the eleventh title in the series Investment in Canada Research Series, reissued in 2019. The volumelooks at how globalization links the economies of all three North American partners into the world economy. The book examines how at the time of publication Canada's trade linkages with the U.S. and Mexico were rapidly growing, and evolving, creating new opportunities and challenges. The volume examines how the overall policy challenge for Canada was to better manage challenges and maximize opportunities presented by the growing North American linkages. Over thirty internationally renowned experts contributed to this in-depth volume on important policy issues of North American linkages.
