Getting the Goods: Ports, Labor, and the Logistics Revolution

by

Getting the Goods: Ports, Labor, and the Logistics Revolution Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Bonacich and Wilson, both of U. of California, Riverside, use the seaports of Los Angeles and Long Beach as a focal point of discussing global supply chains, and how importing benefits the constantly- changing U.S. economy. The authors concentrate on the logistics of processing both imports and exports across the Pacific Ocean, how these two ports have become instrumental in China's expansion into global trade and how the unions have been affected by these changes. This is a provocative read for anyone interested in global economics. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
