Research by Haley

An expert on Asian and Emerging Markets, Dr. Haley's extensive research includes over 150 articles and presentations and 6 books that explore companies and business environments in India, China, Southeast Asia and Mexico. She has also studied the effects of sanctions and trade barriers such as subsidies on the behaviors of companies and nations. Her research on boycotts, divestitures and regulations published in Multinational Corporations in Political Environments concluded that most sanctions had no effect on US corporate behaviors in South Africa [1]. Her latest book, The Chinese Tao of Business [2] highlighted the Chinese business environment and how companies operate there to enhance their profits.

She is a frequent public speaker and expert on the talk and press circuit. Her research has been regularly profiled in the major media including The Economist [3]("Survey of Asian Business", April 7-13, 2001), CNN [4](Special Report: Eye on China, May 18-19, 2005), Bloomberg News[5] (China Steel Makers get $27 Billion Subsidy, January 8, 2008), Barron's Magazine ("Foreign Carmakers keep up the Pressure on Detroit", October 22, 2001), USA Today [6] ("Tech Start-Ups Don't Grow on Trees Outside USA", June 28, 2006) the Wall Street Journal [7] ("Could the Asian Crises Repeat?", July 3, 2007), The New York Times [8] ("With New Urgency US and South Korea Seek Free Trade Deal", January 16, 2007) and BusinessWeek [9] ("The Art of Chinese Relationships", January 6, 2006).

Activities of Haley

Dr. Haley has received a life-time award for her contributions to the understanding of Business in the Asia-Pacific and serves on several corporate and governmental boards as well as academic journal editorial boards. She has also testified numerous times before US Congress on her research on China, emerging and transitional economies. Included in these testimonies, in April 2006 she testified before the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission on the effects of Chinese government subsidies on US business operations in China [10]. In March 2007, she testified before the United States House Committee on Ways and Means in support of the ground-breaking, US federal trade legislation, The Nonmarket Economy Trade Remedy Act of 2007[11]. She has also presented her research on China before the U.S. International Trade Commission, the United States Trade Representative and the United States Department of Commerce.

Dr. Haley's research on Chinese subsidies to its domestic industry and China's business environment has provided support for US federal investigations and legislation on emerging markets as well as in anti-dumping litigation in the European Union and the USA. An analysis of one of her reports on subsidies to Chinese steel can be seen on CNBC's Squawk Box[12]("Steel Fortune", January 11, 2008).

Responding to her research findings and to other testimony from business, on June 20, 2008, U.S. steel pipe manufacturers, who have been battling a surge in imports from China, won a major victory when the International Trade Commission cleared the way for the imposition of stiff penalty tariffs for the next five years. The commission voted 5-0 that the U.S. industry was being harmed by the import of circular steel pipe from China. The decision marked the first time a U.S. industry has won a decision to impose tariffs on a Chinese product based on the argument that the Chinese government was unfairly subsidizing a Chinese industry. The ruling means penalty tariffs ranging from 99 percent to 701 percent will be imposed on Chinese imports of circular welded pipe. For more than two decades, the U.S. government had refused to consider subsidy cases against the Chinese government because China was classified as a non-market economy. However, the Bush administration, facing increasing anger over soaring trade deficits with China, reversed course in late 2007 and announced it would treat China in the same way as other countries in disputes involving government subsidies ("US Steel Industry Wins Trade Case against China", Associated Press, June 20, 2008).

In October 2009, at the request of 8 US senators from Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Louisiana, her research on subsidies to China's industry was used by the US government to question Chinese trade and production pratices in the US-China Joint Commission on Commerce and Trade (JCCT), th major venue for business and trade negotiations between the two countries. See the press release [13] on Dr. Haley's research by Senator Robert Casey (PA). In addition to Senator Casey, the letter requesting the inclusion of her research in the US-China negotiations was also signed by Senator Charles Schumer (NY), Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (NY), Senator Arlen Specter (PA), Senator Sherrod Brown (OH), Senator Debbie Stabenow (MI), Senator Evan Bayh (IN) and Senator Mary Landrieu (LA).
