Economics at your fingertips  

Multinational Firms’ Location and the New Economic Geography

Edited by Jean-Louis Mucchielli and Thierry Mayer ()

in Books from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: This book analyses how foreign direct investors choose their locations, whilst exploring the forces which shape international economic geography. Although these two issues are, to some extent, inter-related, researchers have only recently acknowledged the similarity of economic geography and international business approaches to the empirical assessment of likely causes of the degree of spatial concentration observed in many modern industries.
