Government Support for Exports: A Second-Best Alternative

Government Support for Exports: A Second-Best Alternative

By Penelope Hartland-Thunberg and Morris H. Crawford

Lexington Books, 1982, 105 pp.

The subtitle tells the story. If there cannot be international agreement restraining subsidies, the United States should provide "countersubsidies" to offset the effect of what foreign governments do. Concentrating on export financing and research and development, the authors have a few original suggestions but stay out of the morass of detail and measurement their formula might call for.
