How does a market globalize? How do antitrust and trade policies speed up or slow down the process? How do firms take part in it? This book offers a comprehensive appraisal of the phenomenon from a thorough study of the cement industry. Considered as a model of spatial competition in economic textbooks and inherently local, the industry globalized in the 1980s. This book deals with this extreme case highlighting the fundamental characteristics of globalization.
