The IT revolution and the globalisation of R&D - VOX, CEPR Policy Portal
US firms have begun shifting R&D investment towards non-traditional destinations such as China, India, and Israel. The column argues that this is a response to a shortage in software and IT-related human capital within the US. When US multinationals are able to import talent or export R&D work, this reinforces US technological leadership. Conversely, politically engineered constraints on this response will undermine the competitiveness of US-based firms.

You may not think very much about border transportation issues if you don't live in El Paso or Laredo, Texas, or Nogales, Ariz., or Otay Mesa, Calif.

Automation and American Leadership by Robert Skidelsky - Project Syndicate
In an era of rapid technological change, it is widely assumed that disruptions to labor markets are inevitable – and positive – indicators of a country's international competitiveness. But should policymakers really use the economy to advance national power at the expense of the many people and regions left behind?

German Steel Town Fears U.S. Tariffs Would Deal Crushing Blow - WSJ
The steel mill in this Gothic town one hour southwest of Berlin has long supplied Europe, its main market, with wire used in construction. But it could still become a casualty of new U.S. tariffs on steel imports.

That is because the tariffs, announced last month, are threatening to redirect to Europe a wave of inexpensive steel from countries that had previously exported the alloy to America.
