    2,675 words
    "The transnational corporate system in the late 1990s" by Robinson Rojas (1997) Transnational direct investment in less developed societies in the 1990's is consolidating further the historical regional spheres of influence by the former colonial powers.

  • Toyota
    217 words
    Toyota in France Background In late 1996, Toyota began to look at the whole of western Europe for a site for its ultra-modern plant. Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Poland and the UK all seemed to be the most promising investment recipient, but the list was quickly left a head-to-head battle between Europe's oldest foreign investment rivals - France and the United Kingdom.

  • Foreign Debt
    773 words
    Throughout its history Australia has had to rely on foreign savings to finance its development as did America until the World War I. This savings inflow showed up as a current account deficit that averaged 2.5 per cent of GDP. The 1980's monetary explosion under Keating saw this average leap to about 4.5 per cent. The soothing argument was that this sudden rise only meant that more foreign savings are being invested in Australia. That most of the foreign debt was incurred by the private sector w...

  • Will In The Countries
    2,182 words
    Unquestionably, the events of September 11th have reshaped the debate over globalization. A trend that many economists characterized as irresistible suddenly appears less so. Foreign assembly operations have become less attractive to U.S. corporations now that there is the fact, or even the danger, that their trucks will be stuck in mile-long queues at the U.S. -Canada or U.S. -Mexico border. Companies like McDonald's and Starbucks, whose main opportunities for market growth are outside the Unit...

Until 1830, the fledgling nation was in a state of chaos when Diego Portales ushered in the period of the autocratic republic. This period, from 1830-1861, was a time of firm-handed rule tempered by moderation. Conservative landowners and merchants were in control of a centralized government, and an 1833 constitution endured until 1925. The Conservatives, though challenged by a strengthening liberal...
