Multi-National Corporations and Third World Development

Synopsis

Whether foreign investment by transnational and multi-national corporations alleviates or perpetuates underdevelopment is the subject of this volume. Multi-national corporations that inhibit building of indigenous institutions and other structures leading to self-reliance and economic growth impede rather than stimulate development. Both the positive and negative impact of multi-nationals in the Third World is investigated in these chapters. Various roles available to company and host country are explored. Variations in planning and development scenarios and objectives are explored.

Excerpt

I am pleased to know of the International Development Resources Book project. The 20 resource books which are published under this project, covering the whole spectrum of issues in the fields of development economics and international co-operation for development, and containing not only current reading materials but also up-to-date statistical data and bibliographical notes, will, I am sure, prove to be extremely useful to a wide public.

I would like to commend the author for having undertaken this very ambitious and serious project and, by so doing, rendered a most valuable service. I am confident that it will have a great success.
