Multinationals and Development

This chapter introduces some key issues related to the effect of MNEs on host country development, which is an important but controversial topic. This subject has generated considerable disagreement among researchers and practitioners—those directly engaged in international development policy, finance, and multinational management strategy. A critical missing variable in these analyses is the explicit consideration of MNEs as organizational actors in the development process. MNEs are an important—perhaps the most important—vehicle through which economic development in developing countries occurs, yet their role in the economic progress of developing countries is widely overlooked. The chapter presents an outline of the book and an overview of the content presented in the subsequent chapters.

Keywords:   multinational enterprises, development policy, finance, multinational management, developing countries
