ITC'S INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC REVIEW FEATURES SUMMARY OF U.S. ECONOMIC CONDITIONS AND REVISED ESTIMATES OF U.S. INTERNATIONAL TRANSACTIONS

A summary of U.S. economic conditions and revised estimates of U.S. international transactions from 1986 through 1997 are among the topics covered in the current issue of the International Economic Review (IER), a publication of the U.S. International Trade Commission's Office of Economics. In addition, the publication reviews U.S. economic performance relative to other major trade partners, the U.S. investment position abroad and foreign investment in the United States, U.S. trade performance, and economic forecasts. Comparative economic indicators for major industrialized countries are also provided. An annual IER chartbook depicting trends in U.S. trade with major trading partners and regions is also included in the IER series.

The IER is produced as part of the ITC's international trade monitoring program. The program's purpose is to keep the Commission informed about significant developments in international economics and trade and to maintain the Commission's readiness to provide technical information and advice to policy makers in the Congress and the executive branch. The opinions and conclusions of the IER are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Commission or any individual Commissioner.

The current issue of the IER (USITC Publication 3137, September/October 1998) will be on the ITC's Internet server at www.usitc.gov. To request a printed copy, write to the Office of the Secretary, U.S. International Trade Commission, 500 E Street SW, Washington, D.C. 20436, or fax requests to 202-205-2104.
