Palgrave Macmillan, Jun 3, 2000 - Business & Economics - 253 pages
The behavior of multinational corporations and their affiliates, and the impact of foreign direct investment on host economics, vary between countries and industries in a systematic way. MNCs select their strategies depending on the characteristics of their technologies and products. Some host country governments try simultaneously to influence behavior of the foreign MNC's operating in their territory. The effects of (FDI) on the host economy are determined by this intricate interplay of firm and host country strategies. This book summarizes more than a decade of research aiming to understand this interplay.
