p. 764. The Domestic Sources of Foreign Economic Policieslocked

  • Michael J. Hiscox


This chapter examines the domestic sources of foreign economic policies, with a particular focus on the domestic politics of trade, immigration, foreign investment, and exchange rates. It begins by discussing two main tasks that need to be performed in order to understand the domestic origins of foreign economic policies: first, identify and map the policy preferences of different groups in the domestic economy; second, specify how political institutions determine the way these preferences are aggregated or converted into actual government decisions. The chapter also considers the general relationship between democratization and foreign economic policymaking by looking at elections and representation, legislatures and policymaking rules, and bureaucratic agencies.
