The Political Economy of Trade Conflicts

December 11 - December 12, 1993

Die Aufmerksamkeit, die der Wirtschaft Japans weltweit entgegengebracht wird, ist wesentlich durch den Umstand bedingt, daß die Entwicklung der japanischen Wirtschaft handelspolitische Interessen anderer Länder tagniert hat.


Im Mittelpunkt dieser Konferenz stand der Handelskonflikt, seine innere Logik, seine Funktionsweise und seine Bedeutung als Spielart internationaler Wirtschaftspolitik.
