Predictors of firm-level political behavior in the global business environment: an investigation of specific activities employed by US firms
The non-market environment exerts a tremendous influence on the ability of firms to operate effectively in international markets. This study investigates the relationship between market conditions and firm characteristics as predictors of specific firm-level political activities designed to manage the international non-market environment. The results show that the particular political activity utilized by any given firm is determined by both market conditions and firm characteristics.
