El concepto de empresa trasnacional
The transnational corporations have been the most remarkable economic phenomena of the post-war period. They are the modern incarnation of the great corporations of the end of the XIX century. But, beyond its common characteristics, it is important to underline the specific attributes of this new type of economic agent that radically reshapes the economic system. This paper analyses them from two complementary perspectives. First, paying attention to the ownership and control structure of the firm over its affiliates, in association with the international flows of direct investment. Second, emphasizing the nature of the economic space developed within the firm, its organizational forms, its strategies. Both have been the subjects of the various theories that intend to explain the way transnational corporations operate.
