|Description:||Venice Summer Institute 2005: Workshop on Recent Developments in International Trade: Globalization and the Multinational Enterprise|
|Subject:||This workshop aims to describe the state-of-the-art with respect to our understanding of Multinational Enterprises (MNEs) in a global perspective, both from a theoretical and an empirical perspective. In doing so, the workshop will also deal with the various policy implications. Among the central issues that could be addressed in this workshop are: What do we know about the behaviour of Multinational Enterprises, both from a theoretical and empirical perspective? What is the relationship between globalization and Multinational Enterprises? Does the New Economic Geography provide additional insights into the behaviour of Multinational Enterprises? What is the relationship between national economic policies and (footloose) Multinational Enterprises? Do footloose Multinational Enterprises stimulate a race-to-the-bottom?
