Volume I examines the theory on the development of the multinational enterprise. Volume II investigates proactive motivations for FDI and the political ramifications of the MNE. Volume III collects together literature on structure and control of MNEs, focusing on how MNEs are managed and controlled. The liberal paradigm of IR is extremely popular and, along with realism, it is one of the two main models of interpretation, analysis and forecasting of the processes taking place in international relations. In politics, the representatives of center-left and democratic parties traditionally follow the liberal paradigm, while realists are mostly represented by conservatives, isolationists, and.

Introduction. This book explores and analyzes the effects of the globalization strategies of multinational enterprises (MNEs) on national and local development and highlights the implications of these effects for policy makers.

Containing contributions from leading international business scholars, the text addresses this previously little explored but critically important issue for the future of the world.

Economic globalization implies a growing interdependence of locations and economic units across countries and regions. Technological change and multinational enterprises (MNEs) are among the primary driving forces of this process.

This article attempts to evaluate the changing extent and importance of MNEs as conduits for cross-border knowledge by:   Since his book, A Theory of Multinational Enterprise, which pioneered the application of transaction cost theory to the multinational enterprise, his research has focused on the comparative study of international economic institutions, and particularly on multinational firms and their contractual alternatives, on joint ventures and alliances, and on other modes of foreign market entry.

A critical survey is presented of some of the theories that have been used to explain why multinational enterprises (MNEs) exist, with special emphasis on the transaction costs/internalization approach. The first part of the chapter discusses early capital flow and industrial organization theories in the evolution of the MNE.

The second part focuses on transaction costs/internalization. The Role of Multinational Enterprises in Globalization: An Empirical Overview Abstract The activities of multinational enterprises drive the economic globalization process to a very large degree.

This paper lists some facts about their dominant role in all channels of globalization.

Their importance to the world economy can be seen in the fact that since foreign direct investment has grown more rapidly than the world GDP and world trade.

The fast globalization of latecomer multinationals from Asian emerging economies with impetus has appeared to challenge the established theories of Multinational Enterprise (MNE). This chapter reviews extant theories of MNE and provides areas of refinement and extension to these theories to reflect highly contextualized and unique internal and external conditions of these MNEs.

After more than fifty years of systematic research on multinational enterprises (MNEs) what is apparent is that there is, as yet, no unified or dominant theory of the MNE.

The objective of this book is to bring into focus one particular dimension of MNE behaviour and activity that has been relatively under-researched – namely the geography of.
