From the Institute for International Economics, Mann, who is joined by Jacob Funk Kirkegaard, considers the globalization of the information technology industry and how it affects the overall globalization of America. She discusses why a narrow focus on IT products and industries is needed; links between US firms and global marketplaces; effects on the US economy and workers; international trade; innovation and research and development, venture capital funding, and the need for research professionals; and recommended policies.
