Description : For the first time, here is the complete history of the International Finance Corporation (IFC). In the fifty years since the end of World War II, the world of development finance has grown rapidly. One of the many financial institutions which cropped up to help war-torn countries with their reconstruction was the IFC. International Business Expansion Into Less-Developed Countries examines the success of the IFC in its wide variety of public sector development activities. Covering thirty-five years of IFC operations, the book thoroughly evaluates the formulation of the concept of the IFC and its evolution as a viable global development finance agency. It is the most complete and up-to-date treatment available of the IFC. The administration and operational procedures are described in detail as are case examples of financial development in all regions. Problems encountered by the IFC and new and future activities of the IFC are discussed. Scholars of economic development and international finance will find the unusual way in which the IFC was established and the case examples presented a highly valuable reference, as will students of international studies and organizations.

Description : The Academy of International Business (UK and Ireland Chapter) Published in association with the UK and Ireland Chapter of the Academy of International Business. This book provides theoretical and empirical insights into non-market political and social strategies that firms use when conducting international business. Political strategies include activities such as lobbying, campaign contributions, and using political ties and connections as a means of influencing policy making. Likewise, firms also engage in various social responsibility activities to maintain a good image in society and to improve their legitimacy and reputation when operating globally. Multinational enterprises (MNEs) face various challenges in implementing non-market strategies due to institutional differences between their home and host contexts. Presenting fresh perspectives from a cast of international contributors, this book offers academics, students, and practitioners a greater understanding of how non-market strategies can be effective in international business.

Description : INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS LAW: CASES AND MATERIALS is a timely and useful book. Uncounted millions of “international” transactions occur daily, as goods and services are purchased across the national boundaries of some 200 political units. Capital flows from nation to nation, and so—to a lesser extent—do jobs, as companies seek more favorable locations for their business operations. The “rules” (laws) governing these exchanges quickly become complex, as persons (and governments) from different countries are involved. If problems arise in a cross-border relationship, whose rules apply? What forums are available to resolve disputes? Are there tax implications to the transaction? If so, where? These and similar questions need to be factored into the decision to “go overseas.” Each of the six chapters in this book begins with a brief overview of the subject-matter, followed by short previews of the chosen case examples. The primary content of the chapters consists of some 120 court and arbitration decisions in real disputes, between real parties. The actual text of the decisions in these cases has been edited; some excerpts are quite brief, others are more substantial. Most “background” facts have been summarized by the author, but the edited-decision part of each case is quoted from the actual recorded text of the court or arbitrator who decided it. Clearly, a minute sample from tens of thousands of cases cannot provide comprehensive coverage of what all the world’s legal rules are. Our objectives here are simply to indicate some of the major potential “flash points” of doing international business, to illustrate some of the significant differences in the applicable legal rules, and to provide an exposure to the language and process by which international business disputes are resolved. “Fore-warned is fore-armed.” Being aware of these potential trouble spots, a sensible business manager will presumably consider them in making the decision to engage in cross-border transactions, and take appropriate steps to avoid or minimize potential adverse consequences. Chapter I of this book introduces International Law—its course of development and its two major sources (custom and treaties). Chapter II examines the use of national and international courts and arbitrators to resolve cross-border disputes. Chapter III provides basic coverage of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods: when it applies, how the sale contract is formed, when risk of loss on the goods passes from Seller to Buyer, and what responsibilities the Seller has for the quality of the goods sold. Chapter IV looks at some of the legal questions that might arise in conducting cross-border commercial operations—employment issues, intellectual property issues, and investment issues. Chapter V considers potential questions regarding taxation of international activities, and the regulation of adverse environmental effects. Chapter VI reviews the efforts by national governments to apply their competition regulations to international business transactions, and the difficulties that private parties might have in attempting to enforce legal claims against governments and their agencies. While these are surely not the only legal issues that might arise in connection with international business, they do constitute a significant set of concerns of which managers need to be aware as they venture into the international “stream of commerce.”

Description : With a challenging new approach to its subject matter, this book addresses international business with globalization as its underlying theme. By illustrating globalization as a phenomenon that is fundamentally altering corporate strategy, this book critiques the complexities of globalization and its impact on international business. By doing so, it is entirely unlike other books on the subject. International Business addresses subjects often neglected by other books, such as MNEs, SMEs and the information economy, while encouraging business students to develop a more international perspective and discard parochial tendencies. With this lucid approach, International Business provides students with an integrated overview of the field that is both theoretical and highly practical. Case-studies include: · aiding the globalization of SMEs: the OECD's Bologna Charter · China and the WTO · the pharmaceutical industry and the developing world · RUGMARK: social labelling in action · the Argentinian financial crisis ·environmental profile of Matsushita Electrical Industrial Company.

Description : Designed primarily as a casebook and text for law school study, this volume represents nearly four decades of work by the author to present the fundamentals of the law of international business transactions. The second edition refines and updates the materials in the first edition in a manner intended to be useful not only to students but as a desk book for practitioners. Like the first edition, this second edition focuses on the role of lawyers in identifying risks inherent in cross-border economic transactions, and then using primarily the law and negotiations to eliminate where possible, reduce where practicable and reallocate where necessary, those risks to the benefit of the client. Matters covered include: • the basic export-import sales contract; • the use of price-delivery terms to allocate both price and risk; • the application and use of the United Nations Sales Convention (CISG); • events which may excuse the nonperformance of a contract obligation; • when and how to opt in or out of the CISG; • financing the export sale with a commercial letter of credit; • a basic understanding of the WTO trade regulation system; • the regulation of importation, including tariff classification and valuation; • the regulation of exportation, including licensing and extraterritorial application of export laws; • U.S. and EU Rules affecting the professional liability of international transactions lawyers; • planning for the resolution of disputes in international transactions; • a comparative law understanding jurisdiction, applicable law, and judgments recognition; • issues affecting choices between arbitration and litigation of disputes; • drafting choice of forum clauses; • drafting choice of law clauses; • understanding rules regarding judgments obligations stated in foreign currencies; • recent multilateral efforts to harmonize the law on jurisdiction and judgments recognition; • dealing with and avoiding claims of sovereign immunity and act of state; • operating abroad through employees, agents, and distributors; • anti-bribery laws and the need for compliance programs and contract restrictions; • expropriation, political risk, and how to use insurance and contract terms to deal with them; • investor-state contracts; • antitrust laws and their extraterritorial application. Each chapter is designed to help the reader move from the simple cross-border sales transaction through steps which increase both activity abroad and the laws and regulations that may bring with them additional risks to be identified and allocated. A separate documents volume provides virtually all current primary source material on the law of international business transactions. There are many guides to the conduct of international business transactions, but none organized as clearly as this. With this up-to-date edition of a well-established practical guide, in-house lawyers for multinational corporations and practitioners in business law will quickly develop a framework for understanding each source of protection and enhance their ability to serve their company and clients well.

Description : This book explores how companies combine technological innovation and competitive actions that create new opportunities for business growth in the international market. The complexity of designing today’s technology platforms requires profound knowledge in multiple areas. Technology development and commercialization as an ongoing competitive process involves enabling and inhibiting mechanisms, which govern the speed and acceleration of technological innovation. To compete more effectively, potential competitors are using coopetition and pooling their resources for shared gain in areas where they do not compete directly. Thus, a thorough examination of the current paradigms, theories, and frameworks is needed to increase our understanding of the technology-innovation-competitiveness linkages of business growth. This book brings together recent developments and methodological contributions within technological innovation, international competitiveness, and business growth that bridge the existing gaps and simultaneously advances the debate on this research topic.
