Inside the multinationals : the economics of internal markets by Alan M Rugman( Book )

33 editions published between 1981 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 883 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first edition of Inside the Multinationals was a milestone book which applied the new theory of the multinational enterprises in a North American context. In it Alan Rugman popularized internalization theory. This argues that the key reason for the success of MNEs is their ability to internalize within their organizational structures, international transactions in goods and finance and thereby take advantage of the imperfections which exist in the world's markets. He helped to extend internalization theory as the cornerstone of research in the field of international business. The 1981 book has been widely cited by subsequent researchers. Although it has become a classic in the field it has been out of print for many years. Now with a new Introduction assessing the path-breaking contribution of the book, this 25th Anniversary edition gives scholars access to the original text. Professor Rugman now serves as President of the Academy of International Business

Multinationals and development by Alan M Rugman( Book )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Rugman and Doh question some of the traditional development assumptions and paradigms, arguing that many are outdated or misguided. Drawing from recent research in international business and multinational management, they bring an incisive, microeconomic, "on the ground" perspective to the mechanisms by which MNEs affect growth and development. They specifically evaluate the impact of MNEs on the processes and outcomes of development, as well as the influence of civil society, NGOs, and government policies on multinationals, especially in Asia. Examining the relationship between MNEs and the poorer countries in the world, the authors show that emerging economies have benefited greatly from MNEs, increasing these countries' per capita incomes and improving the overall internal distribution of these incomes."--Jacket

31 editions published between 1985 and 2000 in English and German and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This second edition of an already well-established international business text maintains its unique strategic focus and the use of the triad (US/Europe/Far East) as a framework within which international business is explored. There is an emphasis on economic and multinational approaches throughout. The major strength of this book lies in the use of relevant case material, much of which has how been revised or replaced to include more European examples. Each chapter has common pedagogy, which includes objectives, active learning cases, international business strategy in action, key points, key terms, review and discussion questions, and real cases."--BOOK JACKET
Multinationals in Canada : theory, performance, and economic impact by Alan M Rugman( Book )

16 editions published between 1980 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Multinational enterprises have become one of the distinctive institutions of our times. Controversy over their economic and political effects, and over appropriate public policy responses, has become common in home and host countries and in international agencies. Much of this debate is reminiscent of the role of large corporations generally, particularly in their interregional and intergroup effects. The multinational setting, however, would have raised distinctive issues even apart from the strong surges of nationalism and anti-imperialism which have marked recent history. Canada has a long and unusual experience with such enterprises. Foreign control of capital in the nonfinancial industries (manufacturing, petroleum and gas, other mining and smelting, utilities, merchandising) was already 20 percent in 1930 and 25 percent in 1948. It rose to 36 percent by the late 1960s, but has since receded to about 30 percent. In 1975, fully 55 percent of the capital in manufacturing was controlled outside Canada, as was 72 per cent of that in petroleum and gas, and 58 percent in other mining. These figures exceed those of other developed countries, although there have been striking increases in recent decades. About 80 percent of the direct invest ment capital in Canada is from the United States. Recently, Canadians have xi xii FOREWORD become aware of a surge of Canadian direct investment abroad, which on a flow basis has exceeded inflows (exclusive of retained earnings) for most of the 1970s
