This book applies an institutional perspective on transnational entrepreneurship
to empirical investigations of transnational corporations (TNCs) from Hong Kong and
Singapore. Henry Wai-chung Yeung argues that significant variations in institutional
structures of home countries explain variations in the entrepreneurial endowments of
prospective transnational business networks. This is illustrated by empirical data
from two in-depth studies of over 300 TNCs from Hong Kong and Singapore and over 120
of their foreign affiliates in Asia.
