Peter Smith Ring, Gregory A. Bigley, Thomas D'Aunno, Tarun Khanna

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This special topic forum explores how governments matter in a number of ways: the extent to which government action can foster industry creation and economic development, the impact of corrupt governments on firm-level decision making by managers of multinational enterprises, the concept of the attractiveness of political markets and the impacts they can have on firm-level strategies, and how deregulation can affect the governance mechanisms of firms. Here we offer readers four views on research issues intended to complement the STF articles and to suggest other avenues for fruitful research.
