Foreign direct investment in the United States by Edward M Graham( Book )

27 editions published between 1989 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study moves us a giant step closer to understanding the economic and national security consequences of foreigners' direct investments in the United States. The economic analysis is solidly based in fact and theory, and the analysis of the security implications is dispassionate and realistic ... a much needed contribution to the national debate."--Raymond Vernon, Professor of International Affairs Emeritus, Harvard University
Fighting the wrong enemy : antiglobal activists and multinational enterprises by Edward M Graham( Book )

18 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Antiglobalist forces have been gaining greater momentum in recent years in their efforts to reverse what they view as the negative effects of an integrating global economy. Their influence was felt earlier when efforts to create a Multilateral Agreement on Investment (MAI) ended in failure in 1998 after France left the bargaining table at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, effectively killing the initiative. In this book, through an evaluation of the MAI itself and the issues raised by its opponents, Edward M. Graham takes a fresh look at the growing backlash against globalization. He first explores whether the MAI negotiations failed due to political maneuvering by antiglobalist nongovernmental organizations (supported by US organized labor) or because of irreconcilable differences among the negotiating parties over the substance of the issue of foreign direct investment. He then objectively and thoroughly assesses antiglobalist assertions that the activities of multinational firms have had negative effects on workers both in the home (investor) and host (recipient) nations, with a special focus on developing nations. An important finding is that multinational firms tend to pay workers in developing nations wages that are significantly above prevailing wages. Graham then examines the issue of globalized economic activity and the environment, finding that economic growth in developing nations can lead to increased environmental stress but also finding that foreign direct investment can lead to reductions in this stress. He finds that the worry of many environmentalists of a "race to the bottom" is not borne out by the evidence. The final chapters assess whether or not a negotiation to create a comprehensive agreement on investment should be included in a multilateral negotiating round at the World Trade Organization in the near future. The interests of developing nations in this agenda are given special attention. Graham indicates that, while many developing nations would accept such rules, it might nonetheless be premature to press for a comprehensive agreement at this time. Rather, a limited investment agenda might be both more feasible and more productive

Global corporations and national governments by Edward M Graham( Book )

14 editions published between 1994 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is inherent tension between the increasingly global focus of foreign investors and the continuing national focus of governments. Countries, particularly developing ones, compete to attract investment from global corporations, and they attach performance requirements to tilt the impact of those investments in their favor. This is because the host nations expect investment to raise growth levels, efficiency, and living standards. At the same time, the home countries of such corporations worry that their firms are not accorded fair and reciprocal treatment abroad. These issues have become a source of conflict among nations, one that could escalate considerably if an agreement is not soon reached. Graham's study analyzes the nature and depth of the international investment problem and its potential impact on the world economy and on economic relations among nations. He urges that current rules on foreign direct investment be enlarged and restructured via new international rules and institutional arrangements and offers two alternatives for doing so
US national security and foreign direct investment by Edward M Graham( Book )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines foreign direct investment (FDI) in the United States, the national security concerns associated with this investment, and treatment of these concerns under US policy. This book asks whether the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States (CFIUS) process can be improved and answers in the affirmative.Does foreign ownership of American businesses pose a threat to the United States (like the abortive attempt by CNOOC, a Chinese company, to purchase Unocal during the summer of 2005)? This important new book examines foreign direct investment (FDI) in the United States, the national security concerns associated with this investment, and treatment of these concerns under US policy. It asks whether the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States (CFIUS) process can be improved and answers in the affirmative. The book starts by looking at the review process for foreign takeovers of US firms (including a historical review), looks at the economic and political impact on the United States of foreign direct investment, takes a detailed look at issues relating to FDI posed by the rise of China as an economic and geopolitical power and finally suggests some changes to the Exon-Florio process

Learning mathematics through Derive by J. S Berry( Book )

20 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and German and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mathematik lernen mit DERIVE entwickelt die mathematischen Grundlagen, die in den Natur- und Ingenieurwissenschaften benötigt werden, und ist gleichzeitig eine praktische Einführung in das Computer Algebra Programm DERIVE. Die Autoren legen auf zwei Aspekte von DERIVE besonderen Wert: Zum einen können Lernende DERIVE zu eigenen Untersuchungen nutzen, um grundlegende mathematische Ideen zu verstehen. Andererseits dient DERIVE als Werkzeug, um naturwissenschaftliche und technische Probleme zu lösen. Besonders nützlich für Lehrende und Lernende ist hierbei die Fülle von Aufgaben, die mitsamt ihren Lösungen in diesem Buch zu finden sind. Dieses Buch ist in erster Linie für diejenigen gedacht, die sich den Stoff der Sekundarstufe II erst aneignen müssen, um zur Hochschulreife zu gelangen. Es bietet aber auch jenen, die mit den angebotenen Inhalten aus der Analysis und der linearen Algebra schon vertraut sind, eine vorzügliche Gelegenheit, diese Themen, verbunden mit einem Einstieg in die Anwendung von DERIVE, zu wiederholen und zu vertiefen. Mathematik lernen mit DERIVE zeigt eine neue erfrischende Art, Mathematik zu lernen und zu lehren. Die Autoren haben als Mathematiklehrer an der Universität von Plymouth die Überzeugung gewonnen, dass der Einsatz von DERIVE einen wesentlichen Beitrag zur Verbesserung des Verständnisses und damit des Studienerfolges geleistet hat und immer noch leistet. Die vorliegende Übersetzung bezieht sich auf die deutschsprachige Version von DERIVE und berücksichtigt die aktuelle DERIVE Version 3
