Standortoptionen multinationaler Unternehmen: Eine steuerliche Betrachtung
[Location options of multinational enterprises: A fiscal examination]


  • Gilroy, Bernard Michael
  • Lukas, Elmar


In the course of requests for more dynamic models that illustrate foreign direct investment decisions, the subsequent model offers a contribution to the theoretical modelling of this issue. However, conclusions about the timing are only possible to a limited extent, since options rights are of a perpetual manner and do therefore not mature. Thus, there exists a functional - if even discrete - connection, which could also be a link for further economic research in this field.
