Purpose A dilemma exists in that many view offshoring as a tradeoff between cost efficiency and innovation. The purpose of this paper is to reconcile this dilemma by showing how and why offshoring to institutionally distant host countries may result in innovation. The authors introduce an institutional lens in order to understand how offshoring to institutionally distant locales affects innovation outcomes of multinational enterprises. This lens is aimed to provide an analytical tool that is les...

The industrial economics literature suggests that unions impact various attributes of both firms’ decisions and countries’ Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) flows. The international busi-ness literature suggests that many factors affect firms’ internationalization decisions. One factor is a desire to lower expenses in a bid to increase competitiveness. The link between union power, which is a determinant of labor costs, and internationalization has not been studied. We aim to fill that gap by inve...

Since the dramatic geopolitical shift toward liberalization in the last century, emerging-market multinational enterprises (EMNEs) have become major players in global markets and continue to account for an increasing share of global foreign direct investment (FDI) flows. Given this trend, the questions of how and why EMNEs pursue FDI deserve greater attention. This article builds on recent work that uses resource dependence theory (RDT) to explain EMNE internationalization strategies. We propose...

We theorize that in an attempt to facilitate the transfer of tacit assets during cross-border acquisitions, Emerging Market Multinationals (EMNEs) pursue higher levels of equity participation when targets are based in locations that are institutionally distant in terms of knowledge protection and economic development. Furthermore, we propose that these direct relationships are stronger for EMNEs than they are for MNEs. We test these propositions by comparing the cross-border acquisition activity...

Suboptimal satisfaction levels often exist among offshoring partners. Studies suggest that cultural differences may play a role. Many, however, continue to offer surface-level culture-based associations, with little attention paid to underlying processes. Offshoring's recent focus on higher-order goals – such as innovation, flexibility, and strategic concerns – suggests the need for a comprehensive framework with a stronger understanding of relationships, how they are assessed, and how culture i...

Recently revised theoretical explanations of the internationalization process have been offered to specifically account for the propensity of Emerging Market Multinationals (EMNEs) to engage in accelerated internationalization. However, this literature stream has yet to consider how the fundamental institutional transitions occurring in emerging markets promote the individual and organizational level global mindset that helps account for this accelerated, proactive international expansion. Our d...

Abstract Using Resource Dependence Theory as a lens, we explore current explanations of how and why Emerging Market Multinationals (EMNEs) seek to compete internationally through Foreign Direct Investment. We find that all three dominant explanations and much of the ongoing literature either explicitly or implicitly highlight the importance of a firm's ability to acquire and maintain resources to its own survival and ability to compete as latecomers on a global stage. Through our conceptual mode...
