C. L. Wagner, J. H. Shannon

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The goals of this paper are twofold. First, the authors examine the current forms of American economic cooperation with the People's Republic of China. Each type of cooperation is defined, and firms' reasons for engaging in it are presented. The advantages and disadvantages of each is identified, and its current role in China is discussed. Second, given potential investors' legitimate concern about intellectual property rights in developing countries, the authors examine the role international law plays in protecting the intellectual property rights of owners and licensors. The paper contributes to the literature on the international transfer of capital and technology, and gives potential traders or investors information on the business opportunities in post-Tiananmen China. -from Authors
