Overview

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this book, Rugman and Doh question some of the traditional development assumptions and paradigms, arguing that many are outdated or misguided.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.
