INAF-316 National Interests and Global Business
Fall for 2015-2016
Faculty:
This course examines major trends that shape a growing divergence between traditional national interests and evolving global business. While incorporating international trade concepts, the course focuses on cross-national investment and establishment patterns that raise questions of corporate national identity and citizenship, including how transnational business strategies affect national policy objectives. Interrelationships between global corporate operations and the mechanisms of national political sovereignty and control are analyzed in both developed and developing countries across a range of manufacturing, advanced technology, natural resource and service sector activities. Assigned readings and lectures will provide an historical and comparative context while class discussion will focus on applying past experience to an analysis of current events, drawing on recent case studies and new issues emerging from media reports.
