Mosley argues that some types of multinational production, embodied in directly owned foreign investment, positively affect labor rights. But other types of international production, particularly subcontracting, can engender competitive races to the bottom in labor rights. To test these claims, Mosley presents newly generated measures of collective labor rights, covering a wide range of low- and middle-income nations for the 1985D2002period.LaborRightsandMultinationalProductionsuggeststhattheconsequencesofeconomicopennessfordevelopingcountriesarehighlydependentonforeignfirms'modesofentryand,moregenerally,ontheprecisewayinwhicheachdevelopingcountryengagestheglobaleconomy.Thebookcontributestoacademicliteratureincomparativeandinternationalpoliticaleconomy,andtopublicpolicydebatesregardingtheeffectsofglobalization.(http://www.cambridge.org/gb/knowledge/isbn/item5601002/?site_locale=en_GB)
