Abstract: No matter what strategy managers choose, cross-national differences in states' strategic capabilities and objectives affect multinational corporations' capabilities to manage interdependent operations. In this paper, we develop four attribute dimensions along which states' strategic economic capabilities vary. We then apply these dimensions to show how they contribute to familiar international business models of managerial process, MNC strategy and organizational structure, and country competitiveness.© 1994 JIBS.
