"The Global Factory": Globalisation and the Multinational Enterprise
This presentation analyses "the global factory" - the dispersed, networked multinational firm in the context of globalisation. Globalisation is examined as the interaction of markets and institutions, and their conflicts, in the world economy. The strategies of the focal firm in the global factory are explained, together with their impact on host and source countries. Methods of growing global factories in an emerging country are examined."
