Emerging Economies and the Transformation of International Business in PDF, EPUB, Tuebl, Mobi and Kindle:

The economic power of Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRICs) is rapidly increasing, changing the landscape of global economics and politics. Top scholars of international business address in this vital volume the markets, strategy implications, challenges and possibilities of this new economic reality. As these four nations acquire greater economic clout, the opportunities for other countries increase. The contributors describe the favorable circumstances these evolving economies could provide for the US and other countries, such as expanded markets and services, higher returns on investments, and new partners in building a more peaceful and prosperous world. In contrast, they also discuss risks to traditional industries and possible challenges to positions on human rights and intellectual property protections, environmental standards, free markets and democratic governments. The volume emphasizes the need for companies to adopt strategies to stay ahead in the changing business environment. Governments must also design and implement new policies geared toward mutually beneficial relationships with BRICs. This enlightening study will be of great interest to students and scholars of international business. Executives of large companies will find it of great practical use when planning their organization s future strategies.

The author of this volume provides an insider view of the story due to her involvement with the [Russian oil] industry over a long period and her access to information from key players of the industry. . . the book is a welcome addition, especially for its sound story line. Anyone interested in the transformation of the Russian oil industry will find it a valuable work. It will also inspire researchers to analyse organisational transformation of other types of industries, especially electricity and gas in many countries around the world that have undergone radical changes in the past. Subhes C. Bhattacharyya, International Journal of Energy Sector Management Sarah Dixon has produced a fascinating look at the internal workings of four major Russian oil companies during the decade following their privatisation in the mid-1990s. Dixon has utilised her in-depth knowledge of Russia and her business experience in its thriving oil industry to gain access to Russia s powerful business titans. Her insights and careful observations have resulted in a masterful analysis of organisational transformation during Russia s radical institutional upheaval. The book is a valuable contribution to resource-based theory by explaining linkages between organisational learning, dynamic capabilities, and implementation of organisational transformation. Practitioners will also benefit from the rich case studies offering insight into constraints and enablers of organisational transformation. Sheila M. Puffer, Northeastern University, Boston, US Here the example of the Russian oil industry in the context of transition from a planned to a market economy is used to develop a three-stage framework for organisational transformation. Four longitudinal case studies of Russian oil companies are drawn upon to explain the process of organisational transformation. The book highlights how and why this process differs between companies within the same industry, explores the complexity of the change process

The diversity of author backgrounds, coupled an assortment of provocative insights, makes this book a useful tool for delving into the meat of globalization, providing a succinct but authoritative overview of the underpinnings necessary to appreciate the who, what, where, and when of globalization. American Society of International Law This is a fascinating and insightful set of essays, the relevance of which has only increased with the financial and economic crisis. The ideas and basic positions of the authors range wide, but that is exactly what we require as we struggle to understand twenty-first century globalisation and what to do about it. I should like to see it in the hands of all academics and policy-makers working on global affairs. Alan Winters, University of Sussex, Chief Economist, UK Department for International Development and Former Head of Research, the World Bank This inter-disciplinary volume focuses on the economic and legal challenges confronting globalisation and the evolution of the global system. The Law and Economics of Globalisation discusses the hotly debated topic of globalisation from a wide set of perspectives of law, economics and international political economy. The authors shed new light on the legal, economic and institutional issues raised by globalisation, extending into areas previously considered as national issues. They discuss how the development of the norms, institutions and reach of the global system will be influenced by the domestic and international concerns arising from the increasing integration of countries in the new century. With contributions from lawyers, economists and other experts in the field, this book will be welcomed by academics, students, researchers, and policymakers who are interested in a comprehensive volume on economic globalisation. It will also appeal to a wider audience, such as executive education courses, as well as business and law schools.

Part Two, then, looks at central issues in the contemporary discussions on international investment law and policy. With contributions by leading experts in the field, this title provides timely, authoritative information on FDI that can be used by a wide audience, including practitioners, academics, researchers, and policy makers.
