Product Overview

In order to understand international economic regulations, it is essential to understand the variation in competing corporations' interests. Political science theories have neglected the role of individual firms as causal actors. Theories of institutions have neglected to examine the creation
of business law. Economic theories have neglected to apply concepts of asset specificity to social regulations in competitive industries. This book fills these voids with a company-based explanation. Its theoretical findings open a 'black box' in the literature on international political economy and
elucidate a source of regulatory differences and similarities.
Counter-intuitive case studies reveal how business and governments actually interact. They also contribute to both sides of current debates over corporate social responsibility. They examine diverse topics including offshore finance, flags-of-convenience, CFC production, capital requirements, the
importation and sale of 'dolphin-lethal' tuna, and the advertising of infant formula.
By exploring powerful corporations' investment profiles and regulatory strategies, this book explains why globalization sometimes results in a 'race to the bottom', sometimes in higher common regulations, and sometimes in regulations that differ between countries. Uniquely, it then explains which
regulatory outcome is likely to occur under specified conditions. The explanation incorporates economics, political science, studies of regulatory capture, and examinations of transaction costs, firms' regulatory strategies, and the roles international institutions.
