The future of the multinational enterprise by Peter J Buckley( Book )

48 editions published between 1976 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is one of the most influential studies of multinational enterprises ever published. As a book that revolutionised the field, it includes a critical examination of empirical observations about FDI, offers a long-run theory and other alternative theories of the multinational enterprise, as well as looking at the world's largest firms and offering predictions and policy implications. This resulted in the internalisation theory that has influenced much research on FDI since the book was first published in 1976. To mark the 25th Anniversary, the authors have included a new introduction, which reflects on the enduring impact of the book."--Jacket

Economics of international business : a new research agenda by Mark Casson( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Economics of International Business sets out a new agenda for international business research. Mark Casson asserts that it is time to move the subject on from sterile debates about transaction cost economies and resource-based theories of the firm. Instead of focusing on the individual firm, the new agenda focuses on the global systems view of international business. A static view of the firm's environment is replaced by a dynamic view which highlights the volatility of the international business environment. Coping with volatility requires entrepreneurial skills, flexibility and the need to synthesize information on a global basis. To co-ordinate the global systems properly, entrepreneurs must co-operate through social networks of trust, as well as competing. Constructing a network of joint ventures, it is argued, is simply not enough." "This book is indispensable reading for all researchers and practitioners in the international business field as well as economists and academics alike."--Jacket
