Abstract:

"DiConti investigates the effects of the multinational corporation (MNC) on native entrepreneurship in the countries that host foreign subsidiaries. Serving as case studies, the Mexican and Canadian subsidiaries of Control Data Corporation (a large U.S. computer firm) are examined. This choice of nations and industry with high levels of dependence upon U.S. capital and trade affords the opportunity to assess much-debated aspects of dependency theory and modernization theory, two leading and counterpoised models of economic and political development." "In light of the ongoing North American Free Trade Agreement negotiations between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada, this book is timely in offering support for the negotiatory goals of each country." "DiConti's research is extensive, and he employs comprehensive methods to assess the MNC/entrepreneur dynamic. His findings contribute practical and convincing evidence on the effects of foreign MNC investment upon indigenous entrepreneurship."--BOOK JACKET.
