Prospects for a US-Taiwan Free Trade Agreementby Daniel H. Rosen
Synopses & Reviews
Taiwan has a special status for the United States, as both a leading high-technology economic partner and a place of political and security concern. The authors look at both the quantitative and qualitative evidence on the potential effects of a US-Taiwan free trade agreement (FTA), both for maximizing US economic benefits and for securing a prosperous and secure future for Taiwan. Their analysis indicates that the direct economic benefits of a prospective FTA would be modest and that the FTA could be most valuable to the United States if it leads Taiwan toward greater regional integration.
Book News Annotation:
American specialists respectively in foreign policy studies and international economic policy, Lardy and Rosen examine the economic merits of a free-trade agreement for the US and Taiwanese economies and in the larger context of a changing Asia-Pacific region. They analyze quantitative models of a potential agreement, then assess its likely qualitative effects. They find that Taiwan would benefit more by taking part in regional arrangements, but that such arrangements seem not to be an option right now.
