Abstract

The focus of this paper is on the trade and industrial adjustment in the television sector of the consumer electronics industry in the North American economy. This is the sector of the industry that has received the greatest amount of protection from imports of foreign-produced goods. Both Canada and the United States have experienced a complete change in the industrial structure and patterns of trade in the television industry over the past decade, but the range of trade policies employed by the two countries has been quite different. The first part of the paper outlines the Canadian experience; an analysis of the U.S experience is contained in the second part.
