A Path Forward for NAFTA

Author: C. Fred Bergsten,Monica de Bolle

ISBN: 0881327301

Category: Business & Economics

Page: N.A

View: 3634

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) ranks at the top of anyone’s list of the most controversial trade deals of all time. Reviled by critics as unfair and as a job destroyer, praised by its defenders as having a documented record of success in spurring economic growth, NAFTA reduced tariff barriers to zero for the United States, Mexico, and Canada and led to a tripling of trade among these three countries over the last 23 years. The Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE) has abundantly detailed the many gains and acknowledged costs of NAFTA in numerous publications. Now that President Donald Trump has launched a renegotiation of NAFTA—having at least for the moment abandoned his 2016 campaign pledge to cancel the pact outright—the fundamental question is: Can such a renegotiation produce a positive result? A broad range of experts who have contributed to this PIIE Briefing say “yes.” The new negotiations can succeed only if they focus on how the agreement can be updated and upgraded, however. NAFTA can be modernized only if President Trump’s zero-sum “America First” agenda is replaced by one that seeks to benefit all three countries and improve their competitiveness in an increasingly competitive global economy. Prioritizing American interests is of course essential in any US trade negotiation. But an obsessive concern about bilateral trade balances and narrow special interests in the United States, as opposed to broader national and regional interests, would not only deadlock the negotiations but also likely lead to inferior outcomes for all three countries, or even a breakdown in the talks and an abrogation of the agreement. And walking away from NAFTA altogether would be disastrous for consumers, producers, and retailers in the United States. As argued in several chapters of this Briefing, abandoning NAFTA would degrade regional competitiveness and terminate jobs across North America, undoing the integration achieved since the agreement’s inception.

German Public Takeover Law

Bilingual Edition with an Introduction to the Law

Author: Thomas Stohlmeier

Category: Law

Page: 640

View: 1132

Since it was enacted early in 2002, the German Securities Acquisition and Takeover Act has proven to be a well functioning body of law for public takeovers. With ample opportunity to work with the rules, all parties offerors, target company directors and managers, regulators, and courts have established a firm basis for proceeding confidently with public mergers and acquisitions and public-to-private transactions in Germany. This shift from the uncertain business environment in which the first edition of this book appeared in 2002 calls for an update. This new edition takes into account all the regulatory and judicial clarifications that have emerged during the intervening years, as well as the 2006 amendments that make use of the option not to apply the restrictive European model concerning defensive measures of target companies against public takeover attempts. Among the features of the Act (and the legal framework it represents) considered here are the following: the European passport for public offers; squeeze-out options for offerors; sell-out option for shareholders of target companies; the role of the regulator (BaFin); and restructuring measures after a successful offer. A substantial portion of the book is taken up with texts of the relevant German laws and regulations, synoptically arranged in both German and English. In particular it contains the complete Securities Acquisition and Takeover Act and all of its related regulations, together with substantial portions of the Stock Corporation Act and many other statutory materials that are relevant in public takeover and public-to-private transactions. The German Public Takeover Law, Second Edition, will greatly assist strategic and financial investors, their investment bankers, lawyers and other advisors in international and cross-border business to better understand what their German lawyers are advising them, as it facilitates communication between different legal cultures. The book is also an excellent guide to the current and future characteristics of the law governing German equity markets.
