Front Cover
Routledge, Feb 15, 2013 - Business & Economics - 4 pages
0 Reviews

Is the transnational coporation (TNC) an engine of growth capable of eliminating international economic inequalities or a major obstacle to development through a massive drain of surplus to advanced countries? This book presents five different perspectives on the role of TNCs:

  • Neo-Classical
  • Global Reach
  • Neo-Imperialist
  • Neo-Fundamentalist
  • Internationalization of capital

The author looks at their effect on local labour and capital, and considers the future prospects for TNC involvement in the Third World. The book provides an excellent comparative analysis of TNCs and will appeal to students in development studies and international economics.
