A Critical Assessment of the Eclectic Theory of the Multinational Enterprise
The paper critically deals with the electric theory of the multinational enterprise. It examines, firstly, the theoretical redundancy of the ‘ownership advantage’; secondly, the inseparability of the ‘ownership advantage’ from the ‘location advantage’; thirdly, the conceptual ambiguity of the ‘location advantage’; and, lastly, possible methodological dangers of a multi-factor analysis under the three headings of the eclectic theory.© 1991 JIBS.
