Olibe, Kingsley O. and Crumbley Cited by: In particular, we run a horserace between two distinct economic forces: location fundamentals and agglomeration economies. We find that location fundamentals, including market access and comparative advantage, and agglomeration economies, including capital-good market externality and technology diffusion, play a particularly important role in multinationals' economic : Laura Alfaro, Maggie Xiaoyang Chen.
Despite the great importance of multinational firms in international economics, theoretical and empirical research on these firms has generally been conducted separately from that on international trade. In this book, James Markusen provides a comprehensive integration of the two fields. Top economists examine one of the key forces in globalization from a wide range of theoretical and empirical perspectives. The multinational firm and its main vehicle, foreign direct investment, are key forces in economic globalization. Their importance to the world economy can be seen in the fact that since foreign direct investment has grown more rapidly than the world GDP and world trade.
The global agglomeration of multinational firms. Laura Alfaro and Maggie Chen (). Journal of International Economics, , vol. 94, issue 2, Abstract: The explosion of multinational activities in recent decades is rapidly transforming the global landscape of industrial production. But are the emerging clusters of multinational production the rule or the exception?Cited by: 1. Introduction. Our understanding of the geography of multinational enterprises (MNEs) in the current era of globalization is still limited and the reasons for this and the issues raised have been discussed in detail elsewhere (McCann and Mudambi, , ; Beugesldijk et al., ).In particular, the dominant theory of the MNE emerged out of period characterized by large vertically Cited by:

Multinational Firms’ Location and the New Economic Geography New Horizons in International Business series Edited by Jean-Louis Mucchielli and Thierry Mayer This book analyses how foreign direct investors choose their locations, whilst exploring the forces which shape international economic geography.
The book is structured in two main sections, the first of which, titled "Multinationals, locations and innovations: Foundations and extensions", provides a toolkit for integrating IB scholars' focus on the economic organization of a geographically dispersed enterprise with EG scholars' focus on the economic geography of a multi-location.
"[This book] is an extremely welcome addition to the literature and profession [Multinational Firms in the World Economy] fills a very important niche of bringing together our current knowledge of multinational firm behavior and their economic effects on parent and host countries."Bruce A.

Moreover, the literature at the firm level has shown that a great part of the value added of a final product is created in the first and last stages of the production process by firms involved in Author: Ram Mudambi. This explains why the spatial distribution of economic activity is to an increasing extent determined by the location decisions of multinational firms (MNEs).
Therefore, from a regional economy perspective, the geography of multinational activity is a policy concern for regional and local authorities. Introduction. The industrial-organization approach to trade (the “new trade theory”) and the literature on “geography and trade” have enriched our understanding of the causes and consequences of trade by adding elements of increasing returns to scale, imperfect competition, and product differentiation to the more traditional comparative-advantage models of international by: Location of MNEs and Economic Geography.

As part of the global disaggregation of the value chain, it provides a critical template against which to view the intertwined issues of geography and the multinational firm. Using a unique worldwide plant-level dataset that reports detailed location, ownership, and operation information for plants in over countries, we construct a spatially continuous index of agglomeration and analyze the different patterns underlying the global economic geography of multinational and non-multinational firms.

As part of.Abstract. In this paper we argue that the various discussions of the regional location behaviour of the multinational firm by the different fields of analysis which deal with these issues are all rather at a tangent to each other.
Only economic geography and regional economics discuss firm-location.Depending on one's point of view, multinational enterprises are either the heroes or the villains of the globalized economy.
Governments compete fiercely for foreign direct investment by such companies, but complain when firms go global and move their activities elsewhere.
Multinationals are seen by some as threats to national identities and wealth and are accused of riding roughshod over.
