Theory and History
Chapter 6: The economic theory of international business: A supply chain perspective
This chapter proposes a new way of resolving some outstanding issues in international business (IB) theory by building upon recent work on global supply chains and the ‘systems view’ of IB. It views the multinational enterprise (MNE) as a coordinator of international supply chains, and reformulates IB theory in this context. This approach clarifies the logical structure of IB theory and reveals precisely where the conflicts and ambiguities lie.
