This book examines corporate strategies which are driving the processes of globalization. These strategies are evolving under the influence of national policies and of various patterns of cooperation between governments. The authors study the effects of different policy environments on the management of corporate operations. The interdependencies between countries are analyzed as determinants of policies, with efforts to assess ways in which the activities of firms affect those interdependencies. Attention is given to the structural consequences of corporate strategies for decision makers shaping fiscal, monetary, financial, trade, industrial, foreign direct investment and competition policies. The authors identify requirements and opportunities for cooperation between firms and governments, across borders and sectors. Concerted entrepreneurship and collaborative policymaking are advocated.
