FEBRUARY 1980 - VOLUME 1 - NUMBER 1
Transnational Information Exchange
TIE is a quarterly magazine designed to increase communication between organizations examining the activities of multinationals. The publication is sponsored by the Transnational Institute in Amsterdam.
The first two issues contain long articles on several automobile manufacturers including Chrysler, Ford and MasseyFerguson. By focusing on the global operations of specific multinationals, the publication hopes to help meet the needs of researchers and trade unionists for precise information.
The editors urge research groups throughout the world to contribute to TIE's "Research Entries" section. Here, organizations describe their current areas of study, and request specific information from other organizations. The latest issue included entries by groups from Europe, Canada, the United States and India.
The subscription price is U.S.$10 per year. For more information, write:
