Our paper draws attention to a neglected channel of corruption—the bribe payments by state-owned enterprises (SOEs). This is an important phenomenon as bribe payments by SOEs fruitlessly waste national resources, compromising public welfare and national prosperity. Using a large dataset of 30,249 firms from 50 countries, we show that, in general, SOEs are less likely to pay bribes for achieving organizational objectives owing to their political connectivity. However, in deteriorated institutiona...

Abstract The burgeoning of ibusiness firms in the modern digital economy challenges the received internationalization theory. Given that ibusinesses such as social networking sites create value by providing a digital platform for users to interact with one another, we employ a user-network perspective and externalization logic, suggesting that ibusinesses’ internationalization process depends critically on users’ collective interactions, instead of being solely driven by firms’ market commitment...

Abstract This paper analyzes some salient factors affecting the internationalization speed of digital innovations by tracking international penetrations of 127 apps at Apple's app store. Although apps are globally available via online platforms, their international penetration is still subject to cultural, administrative, geographic, and economic (CAGE) distances that act as user adoption barriers to impede app internationalization. App developers may overcome these barriers by employing the dem...

As scholars in international business are increasingly calling to advance current research on cross-national cultures and distance, the rise of big data provides a timely opportunity to analyze nations and cultures by observing actual behaviors of people around the globe. However, the difficulties underlying collection, analysis and interpretation of big data are substantial. The unstructured nature of big data, combined with its sheer volume turn many popular methods unworkable and demands a ne...

The rise of digital economy is reshaping the traditional conceptualization of international business and entrepreneurship. Instead of being constrained by lack of physical assets or cross-national differences, “born-globals” in cyberspace cost-efficiently innovate digital products and instantly distribute them to users around the world via online channels. The revenue models are also in flux, as businesses are relying on freemium and sponsor based business models instead of charging users. Such ...

How can mobile apps internationalize in cyberspace, and what strategies can they utilize to facilitate the internationalization process? By examining factors affecting the internationalization speed of 127 mobile apps that were launched in App Store in the last quarter of 2014, we find that despite the availability of these mobile apps to international users via global platforms, the speed of international penetration is still subject to CAGE distances. However, our results also suggest that app...
We investigate how the role of selling firms in cross-border acquisition deals. We focus on the important but less studied context of cross-border multiple bidder acquisition auctions, in which bidders from different countries compete against each other for the acquisition of a single target. This context enables us to better understand the perspectives of selling firms by observing how sellers select or reject various bidders. Our results suggest that sellers are sensitive to transaction costs,...
