The study of multinationals is a constantly evolving subject that deals very much with real world issues such as asymmetric information, firm location, corporate tax policies, transfer pricing, the macro-development of economies and exchange rate movements. Exciting new theories of multinational production have been developed to explain these phenomena and have been subjected to close empirical scrutinity. The objective of this course is to provide the student with an independent working knowledge of these theoretical and empirical issues.
