Alliance capitalism and corporate management : entrepreneurial cooperation in knowledge based economies ( Book )
12 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 174 libraries worldwide
As national economies become more closely linked, the value of more active corporate and policy-level co-operation is becoming increasingly recognized. This book promotes the concept of alliance capitalism - a spirit of collegial entrepreneurship - as a means to facilitate more harmonious development in the international economy. The authors examine balances between the competitive and co-operative activities of firms and governments in major industrialized countries from perspectives of efficiency and social justice. They advocate co-operation to overcome internationalized market failures and policy failures, and to reduce imbalances in the spread of gains from global commerce. This advocacy is based especially on comparisons between corporate and policy-level activities in the US and the EU, and between the US and the EU. The potential advantages of strengthening co-operation are stressed with emphasis on imperatives being set by continuing technological advances

Foreign direct investment, location and competitiveness by John H Dunning( Book )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 87 libraries worldwide
This volume addresses some of the critical issues now demanding the attention of International Business teachers and researchers. From several angles, the contributions analyze factors which may explain, and/or influence the relationship between the competitiveness of multinational enterprises (MNEs) and the countries in which they operate. More particularly, the four main issues address: the recent advances in the determinants and strategy of multinational business activity; the determinants of location competitiveness of countries; the competitiveness of emergent and developing countries and the locational responses of both indigenous and foreign-owned firms; and the policy challenges raised by the highly fragmented, and often uncoordinated international regulatory framework on government FDI.It is hoped the contents of the volume will be of interest to international business scholars, senior executives of multinational enterprises and national policy makers interested in advancing their competitiveness by engaging in outward, and encouraging inward foreign direct investment. This book addresses some of the critical issues now demanding the attention of International Business teachers and researchers. This book is published annually
Governments, globalization, and international business by John H Dunning( Book )
9 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 36 libraries worldwide
Leading international scholars (including Dunning, Porter, Lipsey, Strange, Rugman, Stopford, and Graham) describe and analyse this deepening globalization of the world economy - and its implications for governments, firms, and different regions of the world. - ;It is a cliche to say that we live in a globalized world in which investment flows, communications and the operations of multinationals from all parts of the world have changed the character of the international business environment. But the easy concept of globalization poses as many questions as it answers and it is the purpose of this book to address these challenges. In Governments, Globalization, and International Business a prestigious group of international scholars explore in detail the consequences of globalization - defined as 'the deepening structural interdependence of the world economy'. In Part 1 John Dunning, Richard Lipsey, Michael Porter, Susan Strange and Stephen Kobrin analyse these changes from different disciplinary perspectives and intellectual backgrounds. The basic question they address is 'what are the consequences of globalization on the nature, form, and level of domestic economic activity?' In Part 2 the different experiences and policies of a number of economies are assessed in a series of country studies. These include the G7 countries as well as the developing East Asian economies, Latin America and smaller developed countries. In the final part John Stopford and Edward Graham stand back and look at the changing role of national and supranational governance. In doing so they underscore a fundamental tenet of the volume, that globalization requires national governments to re-evaluate various factors of their systemic governance
