This book uses multiple methods, including cross-sectional, time series analysis of the pattern of Preferential Trade Alliance formation by existing World Trade Organization members; a firm-level survey; and case studies of the pattern of corporate support for regional trade liberalization in both China and the United States. The authors show that the growing fragmentation of global production, trade, and investment is altering trade policy away from the traditional divide between export-oriented and import-competing industries.
“Fragmenting Globalization proposes something that so far only a small, emergent literature has accomplished: to systematically investigate the preferences of firms regarding preferential trade liberalization. This is a major and timely contribution.”
—Mark Manger, Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy, University of Toronto
“As IPE scholarship increasingly pays more attention to global production, Fragmenting Globalization is timely.”
—Soo Yeon Kim, National University of Singapore
