Title: Redefining competitiveness for the 1990s
Author: Robert A. Lutz
Address: Executive Vice President, Chrysler Motors Corporation and member of the Board of Directors, Chrysler Corporation, USA
Abstract: In a 'keynote' address delivered to an audience of automobile industry representatives (International Association for Vehicle Design Fourth Congress, 2 March 1987, Geneva, Switzerland), the Executive Vice President of Chrysler Motors Corporation addresses the problems of the USA's massive federal budget deficit. The problems of US trade are intertwined with the problems of the competitiveness of US industry, and the author argues that rather than slide into short-term protectionism, the USA should address the long-term issues of competitiveness for the 1990s.
Keywords: US trade; US federal budget deficit; competitiveness; protectionism; dumping; Chrysler Motors Corporation; automobile industry; USA; United States.
