 Paper: The Resurgent Japanese Economy and a Japan–United States Free Trade Agreement
China has bypassed Japan (and the United States) as the main trading partner of virtually every country in the region and has clearly become its growth locomotive, accounting for almost one quarter of the increase in total world trade in 2003 and passing Japan as the world’s third largest importer.
Now that both the US and Japanese economies are growing robustly, and the exchange rate between their currencies is nearing equilibrium, it is time for the two countries to return to a positive agenda to strengthen their economic (and indeed their overall) relationship.
Hence there is a strong case for Japan and the United States, as they pursue their numerous bilateral FTAs with other countries, to anticipate these developments and to avoid the increasingly serious frictions that will otherwise affect their relationship, by launching a bilateral FTA negotiation themselves.

 [No title]
A third characteristic of American political economy is the absence of long chains of deduction, such as English economists have affected, from the assumption that competition equalizes the wages of labourers and the profits of capitalists in different occupations and localities throughout a country.
But in some States, Pennsylvania especially, there were rich coal-beds and iron ores; and the owners of these and the capitalists at their side were naturally impatient for an earlier harvest, in reaping which, moreover, they could not, like the English protectionists, be charged with taxing the food of the labourer.
The prospects of political economy in the United States should be augured rather from the capacity shown than from what has been actually done, and in that sense the works of both the writers just referred to afford favourable indications.

 Economy & Trade - United States Mission to Germany
As many studies have shown, income distribution in the United States and other industrialized countries is skewed.

Half of the states have enacted consumer incentives to encourage consumers to buy such autos, and the 2005 Energy Bill included tax incentives for consumers buying certain alternative fuel vehicles.” The Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers is a trade association including BMW Group, DaimlerChrysler, Ford Motor Company, General Motos, Mazda, Mitsubishi Motors, Porsche, Toyota and Volkswagen.
