Governing global production: Resource networks in the Asia-Pacific steel industry

Wilson, J.D. (2013) Governing global production: Resource networks in the Asia-Pacific steel industry. Palgrave Macmillan, Basingstoke.

Abstract

Resource interdependence has driven economic integration in the Asia-Pacific. Through trade and investment ties, Northeast Asian steel industries have developed global production networks with mining industries on the Pacific Rim for the supply of steelmaking raw materials. But by spanning multiple national spaces, these production networks unite many national economies while belonging exclusively to none. Who, therefore, is in control? Jeffrey D. Wilson examines how states and firms coordinate their activities to govern global production in the Asia-Pacific steel industry.
