Crossed Wires: How Foreign Regulations and U.S. Policies are Holding Back the U.S. Telecommunications Services Industry, examines the changes taking place in the telecommunications services industry both here and abroad. The reports authors, Erik Olbeter and Larry Chimerine, find that domestic, foreign and international regulations restrict the ability of U.S. firms to take advantage of the opportunities stemming from changes in the industry, and consequently, limit the ability of the U.S. telecommunications services industry to create high-paying jobs.

The study also recommends a proactive international negotiating position to increase the opportunities available to U.S. firms in foreign markets.
