Editorial Reviews

Review


"Here, Jones responds to what he rightly terms the "tumultuous" political and economic changes in the last decade. He examines the role of entrepreneurs and firms in the global economy over the last two centuries in detail, beginning by describing exactly what "multinational" and "globalization" really mean. He shows how these concepts apply to exploiting natural resources, manufacturing and services. He concludes that while government policies and technology had their impact, business enterprises were the prime movers of trade, capital, and knowledge across borders.".--Reference & Research Book News
