Cross-Cultural Differences and Joint Venture Longevity
In this paper we test whether national cross cultural differences between joint venture (JV) parents affect JV longevity by comparing that of two categories of JVs placed in the same environment, those between two or more Japanese parents on one hand, and those between Japanese and American parents, on the other. Carefully controlling for other factors that may affect JV longevity, we find that the longevity of Japanese-American JVs is lower than that of Japanese-Japanese JVs. Such effects, however, appear only for dissolutions that result from the sale of the venture to one of the partners, not for those due to liquidation or sale to a third party.© 2002 JIBS.
