Regional Development in a Global Economy: The Multinational Corporation, Technology, and Andean Integration

By Lynn Krieger Mytelka

Yale University Press, 1979, 233 pp.

Balanced in judgment and very detailed, this study embraces a wide range of Andean bloc developments: industrial programming, technology and licensing, trade gains, Decision 24 and so on. The author declares that "the divorce between regulation and planning . . . destroyed much that was unique in the integrative system" and that "the benefits generated by the integration process were below expectation."
