Traditionally, international business (IB) texts survey the field from a USA perspective, going on to compare the USA to the rest of the business world. This text addresses IB from a purely multinational perspective. International Business is examined from the USA angle, going on to address IB issues from other countries’ perspectives, what we call the “Reverse Perspective.”
The authors interview business executives and politicians from a number of countries including the USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, India, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Japan, South Korea, Germany, Italy, and Russia. These interviews are incorporated at appropriate points in the text providing first-hand information and practical insight.
