Abstract:
Ford of Europe and Local Content Regulations (B)This case extends the case Ford and Local Content Regulations, INSEAD 1984, up to 1994. It offers a potpourri of quotations, paraphrases and opinions from articles appearing in the press between 1984 and 1991 which set the stage for the 1991 automobile trade agreement, optimistically called the Elements of Consensus, in some detail. The case ends with a brief postscript, and then some questions which the EU, its member states, Japan and the major automobile producers will face in the decade of the 1990s. At the end of the decade, both the internal and external European automobile markets are supposed to be freed of all administrative barriers to international trade and foreign direct investment.
