Abstract:

The decade of the 1990s was a turning point for the U.S. international trade agenda. The Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement (CUFTA, in effect 1989), the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA, 1994), and the Uruguay Round Agreement (1996), which transformed the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) into the World Trade Organization (WTO), collectively reduced the importance of tariffs and investment restrictions as barriers to trade. At roughly the same time, the application of information technology made possible an advanced and global logistics system that fostered the growth of global supply chains for industrial and other production. As a result, the longstanding model of firms concentrated in a single country and trading finished products with one another was gradually displaced by a new model, one where cross-border networks of firms, assisted by transnational commercial services, produced things together. A growing proportion of international trade after the 1990s was composed of intra-industry and even intra-firm trade.
