Coal and Canada-U.S. energy relations by Richard L Gordon( Book )

5 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The approach used in this study is twofold: First, I consider the actual prospects of coal as a major alternative to oil, natural gas, and possibly nuclear power in the coming decades. Appraisals are made of how much coal is likely to be used and the specific forms this use will take....Second, having made such an appraisal for the U.S. coal industry, I then turn to its implications for Canadian customers. A key concern is whether traditional sources of coal from the United States will become "unavailable" as a result of chnages in U.S. coal and supply conditions

Policies and practices of United States subsidiaries in Canada by John Lindeman( Book )

10 editions published between 1960 and 1961 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1958 the Canadian American Committee authorized a study of those aspects of subsidiary behaviour that appear to have provoked the most irritation in Canada. Partly on the basis of an extensive program of interviews with businessmen, public officials, and economists and opinion leaders on both sides of the border, the Committee staff has examined corporate policies and practices which are under the direct control of management - including such matters as the public issuance of equity shares in the subsidiary; employment of Canadians in key positions; publication of financial and other information; policies with respect to philanthropic activities; and marketing, purchasing and research policies. The study summarizes the findings and conclusions of this examination

Part II outlines the underlying considerations which serve as the basis for the Plan and explains the reasons for the particular choices made among possible characteristics

A Canada-U.S. free trade arrangement : survey of possible characteristics by Sperry Lea( Book )

6 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study is concerned exclusively with the range of choices - or, more accurately, with basic approaches to the establishment of free trade between Canada and the United States on a preferential basis...This study is presented in three parts. Part I provides a summary of the highlights of the analysis....Part II, the main body of the study, explores in more detail the kinds of choices which must be faced if a Canada-U.S. free trade arrangement were ever considered seriously. It assumes that any regional free trade arrangement must make choices within six basic decision areas: its geographic scope, the scope of the commodities to be freely traded, the basic form of the arrangement as between a free trade area or a customs union, the extent to which free trade is be supplemented by steps toward "economic integration", the appropriate institutional machinery, and the timing of arrangements governing the entry into force of all aspects of the free trade arrangement....Part III consists of appendicies which go further into a number of historical and technical matters arising from the analysis in Part II
North American agriculture in a new world by J. Price Gittinger( Book )

3 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study concerns the agricultural products that bulk large in Canadian and U.S. exports to other countries - and the policies governing one of them ... The products in question, and the policies governing one of them, commit our reconnaissance to two separate tasks. The first it to identify long-term factors that will tend to open - and sometimes close - market opportunities in various areas. The second is to explore the prospects in the one agricultural sector that has strained Canadian-American relations off and on since 1955 - overseas shipments fo wheat

Outward bound : Canadian direct investment in the United States by Alan M Rugman( Book )

6 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Foreword: Most Canadians and a growing number of Americans are aware that our two countries are each other's largest trading partner...Investment issues have long been a source of tensions in the bilateral relationship because of Canadian concerns about the extent of U.S. ownership of key Canadian industries. Although the United States is now a debtor country, U.S. corporations continue to have substantial operations thoroughout the world, with those in Canada accounting for more than one-quarter of all their holdings in the industrial countries. Over the past decade, however, there has been a remarkable shift in bilateral investment flows. Investment by Canadian firms in U.S. operations has accelerated and the stake of Canadian multinational enterprises in the U.S. economy has risen rapidly relative to the value of U.S. holdings in Canada. This study...documents the changes that have taken place
A time of difficult transitions : Canada-U.S. relations in 1976 : a staff report by Canadian-American Committee( Book )

7 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the introduction: The purpose of this report is to review some of the major developments of the past few years that have shaped the current state of the bilateral relationship and to examine the most likely near-term trends and issues in that relationship. In this introduction the theme of difficult transitions is developed and related to a variety of recent bilateral issues. Chapter 2 highlights the main elements of the current economic environment in the two countries and examines how this environment has created short-term transitional problems in such areas as trade, investment, and the rate of exchange. Chapter 3 takes a closer look at private capital flows in terms of both short-term economic factors influencing investment decisions and institutional developments that have affected, or might affect, bilateral capital movements. As an example of issues that have persisisted in the Canada-U.S. relationship for many years the Automotive Agreement of 1965 is examined and assessed in Chapter4. Certain aspects of bilateral energy relations are reviewed in Chapter 5 to illustrate the type of complex new issues that have been emerging

The role of international unionism in Canada by John H. G Crispo( Book )

4 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among the many examples of interdependence that characterize the U.S.-Canadian relationship is the presence in Canada of branches of "international unions". These unions - which are "international" in that they have members in both Canada and the United States - have their headquarters and most of their membership in the United Sates. They have expanded into Canada, as has U.S. industry, largely in response to economic and cultural forces that are part of the North American setting....The phenomenon shows no signs of having been master-minded by Washington or even consciously sought after by American labour. Nevertheless, there have been expressions of misgiving from time to time, about the pervasiveness of international unionism in Canada. Over seventy percent of Canadian union members belong to internationals. Worry about the potential political or other influence that might be exerted on Canada through these unions has led to occasional proposals for restricitng their growth
