A path-breaking analysis of how international direct investment since World War II has played an important role in the process by which industrial countries generate technology and productivity growth. It covers both the leader-follower relations of the U.S. and Japan in the early postwar years, and the more complex relations between the two competitive but mutually dependent giants of recent years.
