The Political Economy of Trade Conflicts. The Management of Trade Relations in the US-EU-Japan Triad 

1994, Springer Verlag, Berlin, viii, 157 S., ISBN 3-540-58395-5.


The conference "The Political Economy of Trade Conflicts" was organized jointly by the German Institute for Japanese Studies and the Friedrich-Ebert-Foundation together with the Institute of Modern Political Science and Economics of Waseda University in December 1993. The results of this conference are presented in this reader. Three issues were of special importance: the US-Japanese conflict over the reduction of trade imbalances via quantitative import targets; the liberalization of trade in agricultural products, especially the opening of the Japanese rice market; and the trade tensions between the European Union, the US and Japan in high technology industries.
