Example text

In pursuit of economic objectives and national interests, states attempt to control actors within their realms, including multinationals (Krasner, 1978). Mercantilist theorists have argued that international competition has intensified because the USA has lost its technological lead in products and manufacturing processes. The US multinationals must now increasingly compete on the bases of prices and a devalued dollar. Thus, the USA can no longer draw on the technological rents associated with its industrial supremacy and the supremacy of US multinationals in the economic order has come to an end.

Manufacturing-process theories explain the entry of multinationals into Europe, Africa and Asia, through the late 19th and mid-20th centuries. For example, they provide useful frameworks to explain the post World War II expansion of US, horizontally integrated, manufacturing multinationals into other states. However, Vernon (1979) later acknowledged that the explanatory powers of product-cycles had waned. Multinationals now have global networks that allow them to develop innovations in response to threats and opportunities in various markets (see Ghauri, 1992; Haley, 1998).

They have asserted that multinationals add skewness to the income distributions among classes in less-developed states (Evans, 1981). And, because of their repatriation of profits and their superior access to local capital, they have contended that multinationals prevent the rise of indigenous enterprises (Hirschman, 1969). Dependency theorists have also concluded that multinationals have negative, political consequences for less-developed states (Breton, 1964; Johnson, 1965; 1967; Vernon, 1967).
