Summary:pt. 1. Agglomeration and multinationsl firms' location -- pt. 2. Home market effects, market size and location strategies
This book analyses how foreign direct investors choose their locations, whilst exploring the forces which shape international economic geography. Although these two issues are, to some extent, inter-related, researchers have only recently acknowledged the similarity of economic geography and international business approaches to the empirical assessment of likely causes of the degree of spatial concentration observed in many modern industries
