Traditionally, international business (IB) texts survey the field from a U.S. perspective, going on to compare the U.S. to the rest of the business world. This text addresses IB from a purely multinational perspective. International Business is examined from the U.S. angle, going on to address IB issues from other countries' perspectives, what we call the “Reverse Perspective”. In accomplishing the U.S. and the Reverse Perspective approaches, the authors interview business executives and politicians from a number of countries, i.e. the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, India, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Japan, South Korea, Germany, Italy, Russia, etc. The interviews are incorporated at appropriate points in the text as first-hand information providing a multinational flavor to IB from each country's representatives. Cases include: Air Arabia, Gap, Diebold Inc, Matsushita, AMSUPP, NIKE, China Eastern Airlines, Luton & Dunstable Hospital, Harley Davidson, Cassis de Dijon, Green investments in Belize, Chicago Food and Beverage Company, Advanced Software Analytics * Covers international business issues from a multinational perspective.

Coopetition in International Business

Publisher: Copenhagen Business School Press DK
ISBN: 8763001284
Release Date: 2004
Genre: Business & Economics

"This book addresses a new philosophy or a major strategy that is emerging today in international business: simulaneous competition and cooperation between multinational enterprises (MNEs) and their global rivals, foreign governments, alliance partners, and corporate members. ... Coopetition goes beyond conventional rules of competition and cooperation to combine the advantages of both. Coopetition involves cooperating to create a bigger business pie, while competing to divide it up. Cooperation reflects the elements of mutual accommodation and collaboration, seeking joint payoffs and goal accomplishment from the interdependent activities or resources. Competition reflect the elements of bargaining or control and related conflicts, seeking private gains for the[ir] own party."--Page 9 (Preface).
