Traditional international management theories do not account for the cognitive limitations and biases of decision-makers which bound their ability to make rational choices. Most theories have not truly accounted for firm heterogeneity, i.e. in the similar contexts, two firms may make different choices. This heterogeneity is not always rooted in differences in ‘firm-specific’ or ‘ownership’ advantages. We zoom in on how behavioural concepts, such as cognitive limitations, availability biases and ...

This article argues that innovation in and from emerging economies is largely shaped by the challenges of sustained catching-up with the advanced economies. Just as firms and industries are constantly seeking to upgrade their technological and organizational capabilities, so too are their societies reconfiguring their institutions and networks to improve their knowledge resources. Such a co-evolutionary process requires IB scholars to draw on interdisciplinary work from the innovation and develo...
The capacity of Multinational Enterprises (MNEs) to upgrade economic activity in the host country is a key objective of an MNE-assisted development agenda, arguably having contributed to reducing income inequalities between countries. However, the limited evidence available suggests the gains of FDI are rarely evenly distributed within recipient countries. How do MNEs affect the extant within-country inequalities? Whether by direct or indirect action (or by inaction), MNEs can have both a positi...

Abstract The dynamic capabilities perspective highlights that continuous asset augmentation enables firms to address changing environments and sustain competitiveness. However, the literature is still unclear about the nature, interaction, and configuration of dynamic capabilities, and why not all firms are able to successfully upgrade. We propose that the parallel and ongoing IB discussion on asset recombination and firm-specific advantages (FSAs) sheds light on this debate. Continuous asset up...

In the developing world, the informal economy can account for as much as 80% of the population. I focus on the urban component of informality, where both informal employment and informal enterprises are especially vulnerable to the pandemic-induced economic shock. I explain the complex nature of informality, some of the reasons for its persistence, and its interdependency with the formal economy, especially in the manufacturing sector, through global value chains. Large firms (whether MNEs or do...
