NBER Working Group Descriptions: International Trade Organization

International Trade Organization (ITO), Gordon Hanson, Director
    The NBER's Working Group on International Trade and Organizations (ITO) studies how firms structure their operations in the global economy. Multinational enterprises have been at the forefront of globalization. These firms mediate trade flows between countries, are the source of much foreign investment, and are a principal conduit through which technology moves abroad. The ITO working group examines how trade policy, tax policy, and the legal environment in the United States and other countries affect where multinational enterprises locate their activities and how they design the contracts and ownership arrangements that govern international flows of trade, investment, and technology.
