Globalization critics vs. free trade theory: ideological conflicts and the behaviour of MNEs


Scherer, A G; McKinley, W (2008). Globalization critics vs. free trade theory: ideological conflicts and the behaviour of MNEs. In: 50th Annual Meeting of the Academy of International Business (AIB 2008), Milan, Italy, 30 June 2008 - 3 July 2008.

Abstract

We discuss the ideological conflict between critics of globalization and free trade theorists who deconstruct the metanarrative of universal human rights that underlies the social agenda of the globalization critics. We point out the implications for the corporate objective function and the
social behaviour of multinational corporations. The ideological conflict has not yet been resolved, but we spell out its effects and discuss various scenarios for resolution of the conflict and how those scenarios would influence corporate goals.
