    This book analyses how foreign direct investors choose their locations, whilst exploring the forces which shape international economic geography.

  6. Multinational Enterprises, Innovative Strategies and Systems of Innovation

    Multinational Enterprises, Innovative Strategies and Systems of Innovation

    Edited by John Cantwell, José Molero
    Multinational Enterprises, Innovative Strategies and Systems of Innovation explores the extent to which multinational enterprises (MNEs) are decentralising the creation of new technological capabilities to various different countries. The book contends that technological strategies and innovation activities undertaken by firms are a critical part of the increasing internationalisation of economic activity, and that MNEs are the main actors for these changes. It goes on to explain that MNEs must now effectively manage new technological assets in order to cope with extensive changes in the nature of international competition. Learn More

  7. The Structural Foundations of International Finance

    The Structural Foundations of International Finance

    Edited by Pier Carlo Padoan, Paul A. Brenton, Gavin Boyd
    The Structural Foundations of International Finance examines the ways in which national economies, especially those of industrialized countries, are affected by the operations of international financial markets. Although these markets provide productive funding, there is also much speculative trading in stocks and currencies which can cause booms, slumps and hinder recovery. The authors advocate entrepreneurial coordination by productive enterprises for balanced and stable growth, with reduced risks of financial crises and recessions. Learn More

  8. Alliance Capitalism for the New American Economy

    Alliance Capitalism for the New American Economy

    Edited by Alan M. Rugman, Gavin Boyd
    Alliance Capitalism for the New American Economy advocates engagement with the USA’s macromanagement problems in a spirit of alliance capitalism, for the development of a more integrated, dynamic economy. Whereas most studies of the USA emphasise the efficiency effects of intense competition between firms, this book stresses that as the new economy becomes more knowledge based, its development necessitates active intercorporate cooperation, especially in high technology sectors.

  12. Learning in the Internationalisation Process of Firms

    Learning in the Internationalisation Process of Firms

    Edited by Anders Blomstermo, D. D. Sharma
    Research on the internationalisation process of firms shows that the development of experiential knowledge is a major factor in explaining firms’ internationalisation. However, our knowledge of how this takes place is limited. The detailed mechanisms of learning, and the effects of the duration of the firm’s international operations, have not been studied in depth. Using examples from Denmark, Finland, South Korea, New Zealand and Sweden, the contributors to this book examine these factors and test the basic assumptions of the internationalisation process of firms.

    China and its Regions

    Edited by Mary-Françoise Renard

  19. Entrepreneurship and the Internationalisation of Asian Firms

    Entrepreneurship and the Internationalisation of Asian Firms

    Henry Wai-chung Yeung
    This book applies an institutional perspective on transnational entrepreneurship to empirical investigations of transnational corporations (TNCs) from Hong Kong and Singapore. Henry Wai-chung Yeung argues that significant variations in institutional structures of home countries explain variations in the entrepreneurial endowments of prospective transnational business networks. This is illustrated by empirical data from two in-depth studies of over 300 TNCs from Hong Kong and Singapore and over 120 of their foreign affiliates in Asia. Learn More
