Multinational enterprises (MNEs) invest in a variety of host economies, and closely interact with local businesses and society at large. This role has become the focus of policy debates of all sorts, as MNEs are seen as a primary conduit of globalization, thus spreading both its benefits and its negative side effects. This selection offers an interdisciplinary perspective on MNEs and host economies. Theoretical models are provided by economics research, yet some of the more subtle and complex forms of impact are hard to analyse using economics methodologies. A range of other disciplines such as management, sociology and ethics thus contribute to the discussion of these wider issues. The articles in this collection cover theoretical and empirical studies on the horizontal and vertical impact on local firms, to issues of labour standards and the natural environment, and normative issues.

`A well designed and first rate collection of some of the most influential papers on the interaction between MNEs and the host countries in which they operate. In these two volumes, Professor Meyer has cleverly orchestrated most of the economic and social issues of interest and concern to scholars, business practitioners, governments, and civil society. These essays deserve the most serious attention by all those interested in the ever increasing role of MNEs and their subsidiaries in the global economy.' -- The late John Dunning CBE, formerly of the University of Reading, UK and Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, US
