MULTINATIONAL ACTIVITIES OF MAJOR U.S. AUTOMOTIVE PRODUCERS. VOLUME IV. A PRELIMINARY EVALUATION OF TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION AND TRANSFER

While the major focus of the present study, as reflected in Volume II, III, and V, has been upon the overseas activities of the four U.S. automobile manufacturers, a supplementary concern has been to develop insights into the flows or transfers of technology between each U.S. parent corporation and its subsidiaries and affiliates overseas. Volume IV presents some observations and a preliminary assessment of these technology flows. The examination is far from comprehensive and only peripherally considers the issues of technology transfers between a U.S. manufacturer and independent foreign automobile manufacturers or other independent firms.
