Transnational Corporations and International Production: Concepts, Theories, and Effects
Transnational corporations and international production; concepts, theories, and effects.
Edward Elgar Pub. Co., [c]2005
In a textbook for graduate or final-year undergraduate students in business and international studies, economics, international relations, and development studies, Ietto-Gillies (emerita applied economics, London South Bank U.) summarizes all the main theories of transnational corporations and international production, and presents a full analytical framework for assessing the effects of the corporations’ activities. She first introduces such basic concepts as foreign direct investment and international production. The two sections on theories consider periods before and after World War II. The analytical framework, after setting out methods, considers effects on performance, labor, international trade, and the balance of payments.
