First, as noted above, there are many levels of cooperation, some of which involve the exchange of information and the pursuit of knowledge. Second, as Putnam and Maynes have pointed out, there may be occasions in which a coalition of common interests across national boundaries may form to collaborate on a particular coordinated program of action. This seems to have been the case at the 1978 Bonn summit, where a grand bargain was struck whereby West Germany and Japan agreed to introduce expansionary fiscal actions, the United States agreed to pull in its fiscal reins and to decontrol domestic oil prices, and France and the United Kingdom agreed to remove their hold on trade liberalisation under the Tokyo round.
