Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written in non-technical terms, this book explains how the dynamics of big business have influenced national and international economies.

Synopsis:

Written in non-technical terms, Global Enterprise explains how the dynamics of big business have influenced national and international economies. The first systematic treatment of big business in advanced, emerging, and centrally-planned economies from the late nineteenth century, when big businesses first appeared, to the present. How such firms emerged and evolved in different economic, political, and social settings constitutes a significant part of twentieth century world history. This book is particularly valuable now that large enterprises are being challenged by small firms, networks, and alliances.
