This book explores 4 key issues in the world economy: the changing context of international business, the continuing pace of economic integration, international joint ventures and knowledge management. More specifically the book explores how each of the issues affects the strategies of multinational enterprises (MNEs). The book takes into account the moral basis of global capitalism, made all the more important after the events of 11 September 2001.
Peter Buckley is a world renowned expert in the field of international Business.
