April 1977
Foreign Affairs;Apr1977, Vol. 55 Issue 3, p243
This article examines the causes of the tension between multinational enterprises and the states in the U.S., as of April 1977. Perhaps the most proximate cause has been the revolutionary shrinkage in international space over the past two or three decades, brought on by the introduction of new modes of international communication, including the radio telephone, jet air travel and the computer. These developments have created the basis for a new state of interdependence among nations, manifested in higher levels of international trade, a greater flow of technical services across borders and larger movements of international capital.
