8. Source for the paper: Jefferson Cowie, Capital Moves: RCA’s Seventy-Year Quest for Cheap Labor
Capital mobility and globalization have had a dramatic impact on twentieth century United States economic history and development. We often view capital mobility as a relatively recent phenomenon. Not so, says Jefferson Cowie. Cowie’s describes this change beginning in the United States and later extending Ciudad Juárez. In Cowie’s telling of the story reasons and effects of capital mobility were well established long before RCA decided to begin manufacturing its products in Mexico.
In your essay, you should use Cowie’s analysis of RCA to address two sets of questions: First, why did RCA move? Second, as you survey RCA’s movement nationally and internationally, can you identify any patterns in the experiences of the workers and communities where RCA established production facilities?
