    Descriptive info: Economic Statecraft: In Alignment with the CREATe Vision.. November 27, 2012.. President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton recently visited Asia, a region marked by economic expansion and increased engagement with the US.. While there, Secretary Clinton gave the fourth and final in a series of speeches which showcase the Administration s focus on putting economics and economic power at the core of foreign policy.. In the.. Delivering on the Promise of Economic Statecraft.. address in Singapore, Secretary Clinton highlighted the pillars of the Economic Statecraft agenda.. In the first, updating foreign policy, she emphasized how in Asia, the United States is taking concrete steps to protect and update an open, free, transparent, and fair economic system that has made the region s spectacular growth possible.. New trade policies, such as The Trans-Pacific Partnership (.. TPP.. ), are working towards a global vision which will take on the challenges that inhibit trade today, from non-tariff trade barriers to preferential treatment for state-owned enterprises.. On the topic of Commercial or Jobs Diplomacy Clinton discussed the focus to boost U.. S.. exports, open new markets, and level the playing  ...   In the 1990s, businesses used their supply chains to take on the problem of child labor in the developing world, and it was American businesses that began to change the terrible picture of five-, seven-, nine-year-old children in what amounted to forced labor.. Today, I am encouraged that a new coalition of major companies is coming together to keep global supply chains free of pirated software and counterfeit goods.. That gives innovators their rightful reward, but it also creates American jobs.. Because nobody outworks us, and nobody out-innovates us.. We just have to be out there competing to deliver what we do best.. The Economic Statecraft agenda also emphasizes the importance of commercial diplomacy that boosts U.. exports, opens new markets, and levels the playing field for American businesses so they can compete and succeed anywhere.. Equally important to note is the idea of fostering opportunities where all countries and companies can prosper.. As Secretary Clinton stated, We want every company American, Singaporean, or any other to have a level playing field and a chance to compete on the merits.. That s a recipe for shared prosperity..

  • Title: Intellectual Property Rights - Causes and Losses | CREATe.org
    Descriptive info: IPR Infringement: RAND Study Highlights Causes and New Ways to Assess Losses.. October 17, 2012.. Accurate measurements of the damages caused by Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) infringement are difficult at best.. Recently, RAND released a.. study.. assessing past measurements of IPR infringement, and offering multiple insights into the causes behind IP theft, and ways in which companies can become better at measuring their own losses.. Drivers behind IPR infringement:.. Supply Side:.. The growing prevalence of digital and networked technologies.. The globalization of trade, the growing importance of international brands.. The presence of large integrated markets supporting free trade.. Low or weak enforcement of penalties targeting violators of IPR infringements.. The growing presence and involvement of organized crime in the production and distribution of counterfeited and pirated goods.. Industry-specific factors.. Demand Side:..  ...   RAND methodology examines the relationship between a firm s sales forecast errors to country-level indicators (such as rule of law, international tourism, and internet access) to estimate what portion of an unexplained forecast error comes from counterfeits.. While this new methodology adds valuable information to the advancement of accurate measurements of IPR damages, it will no doubt generate a good deal of debate on how close it gets to the exact monetary amount lost due to IP theft.. Further work on obtaining a more precise picture of the costs of IPR infringement is important because it can provide businesses with important data to advocate for stronger enforcement, inspire cooperation among organizations that are impacted and motivate the sharing of best practices across industries to protect IPRs..
