This paper investigates the link between inward foreign direct investment flows and host country corruption levels using annual data for developed, developing and transitional countries, over the 2002-2015 period. We find that the nonlinear specification provides a better characterisation of the relationship between corruption and inward FDI flows. Furthermore, we find that this relationship is a function of the development status of the host country. Finally, the marginal impact of corruption l...

This paper argues that despite changes in the technological and the business environment, with new concerns placed on people and planet in addition to profits, the objective of the public firm remains the same as it always has been �?? to maximize common shareholder wealth. We address the relevance of the old objective of the public firm in the current era of shareholder activism, instant social media, a discriminating customer base that wants products that do not destroy the planet, and the adv...

Abstract Facing global competition, multinational corporations (MNCs) have considered offshoring as a viable alternative to domestic production. By offshoring production, MNCs have generally enjoyed lower labor costs and higher production efficiencies, in addition to other benefits. Unfortunately, target countries chosen for such activities tend to be pollution friendly countries. To make matter worse, strong environmental pollution regulations in host countries (for example, through carbon taxe...

Although there have been many academic papers dealing with corporate social responsibility including charitable giving, many have focused on domestic giving. Very few papers have focused on foreign giving. We add to the emerging literature on foreign giving by examining separately the determinants of domestic vs. domestic and international giving for a sample of US manufacturing and service firms over the 2004–2010 period. Using a logit regression model, our findings show that firms with larger ...

Uncertainty influences a decision maker's choices when making sequential capital investment decisions. With the possibility of extremely negative cash inflows, firms may need to curtail operations significantly. Traditional Net Present Value analysis does not allow for efficient management of these problems. In addition, firm managers may behave irrationally by accepting negative Net Present Value projects in the short term. This paper presents a Monte Carlo simulation based model to provide pol...

We propose an alternate context-based extension to the agency theory-grounded explanation of foreign ownership mode choices proposed in the literature. Using a sample of Taiwanese firms investing in the greater China region over the 2001–2009 period, we show that both economic and non-economic factors influence the choice of foreign ownership mode. In addition, we document that higher institutional ownership percentages motivate Taiwanese firms to select shared ownership in the greater China reg...

Today, firms are facing a globally competitive environment. Against this backdrop, firms can ill afford to make mistakes in their capital budgeting and acquisition decisions. When making major decisions, firms may be faced with additional costs associated with managerial anchoring. Using simulation results, it is shown that firms making off-shoring decisions can be better off using two or more managers when managerial anchoring can lead to significant cost increases. This paper shows the conditi...

To date, there is ample evidence on the determinants of domestic charitable contributions made by US firms. However, to the best of our knowledge, no one has investigated the determinants of foreign charitable contributions made by US firms. Using the Socrates KLD database and the US M&A data for the 2004–2010 period, we find evidence that foreign giving by US manufacturing firms is linked to certain key variables. Specifically, we find evidence that variables found significant in the domestic g...

Problem statement: As the business environment becomes more and more complex due to rapid globalization, increasing competition and advancing technologies, universities are under more pressure to respond by providing students with experiential learning opportunities that mirror reality. In this study, we attempt to provide a better learning experience for students. Specifically, we provide a framework from a student learning perspective that improves our capability to determine what the goals an...
