Abstract : Under the impetus of a widening trade deficit and recessionary economic conditions for United States businesses, Congress and President Reagan have sought to place emphasis on increased growth of international trade by removal of some of the barriers which have inhibited the entrance of businesses, particularly small and medium size corporations, into the global marketplace. This initial step, in the form of the Export Trading Company Act of 1982, has been met with caution and optimism in the business and banking community. If maximum advantage is taken of the provisions of that legislation and a number of export trading companies are developed - independent, in-house large corporation models, and bank-owned, - the benefits to American business can be substantial.
