Description

The eclectic paradigm has arguably become the dominant theoretical basis in the study of FDI, multinational corporations and internationalisation over the last two decades. The contributions to this volume evaluate the eclectic paradigm in the global economy and its validity as a theoretical basis to understand developments such as economic globalization and the subsequent growth of global and alliance capitalism.

Reviews

'It provides a welcome assessment of the contribution of the paradigm to IB scholarship, as well as focusing on current developments and extensions.' - Journal of International Business Studies
