Corporate organization varies within a country and across countries with country size. The paper starts by establishing some facts about corporate organization based on unique data of 660 Austrian and German corporations. The larger country (Germany) has larger firms with flatter and more decentralized corporate hierarchies compared to the smaller country (Austria). Firms in the larger country change their organization less fast than firms in the smaller country. Over time firms have been introducing less hierarchical organizations by delegating power to lower levels of the corporation. We develop a theory, which explains these ...

International trade in services: A portrait of importers and ...
Services trade accounts for a large and growing share of international trade - but we know very little about the firms carrying out this trade. Using firm-level data from the UK between 2000 and 2005, this column paints a detailed picture of importers and exporters of services, and discusses some of the resulting implications for economic policy. Trade in services has been the fastest growing component of international trade since the early 1990s, with average annual growth rates of close to 10% and a total cross-border export value of $2,800 billion in 2006 (WTO 2008). Over the same period, the composition of services trade has ... market research, surveys and trends

For most of its lengthy history the field of international trade largely ignored the role of the firm in mediating the flow of goods and services. Traditional trade theory explained the flow of goods between countries in terms of comparative advantage, that is, variation in the opportunity costs of production across countries and industries. Even the research focusing on differentiated varieties and increasing returns to scale that followed Helpman and Krugman continued to retain the characterization of the representative firm.� However, the assumption of a representative firm, while greatly enhancing the tractability of general ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Global Marketing
The level of societal development determines the market system that operates. Society has been developing from simpler to complex and marketing has also developed from barter to global. Before the introduction of money, people were exchanging goods for goods. Barter system of marketing was associated with numerous problems including valuation and double coincidence of wants. The introduction of money as a medium of exchange and a measure of value resolved the problems of barter and paved way for specialization and international trade.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Google Answers: Market Entry Strategy methodologies and researchers
I have sorted the materials found on Market Entry Strategy into Internet links, periodical citations and books. I have not been able to discern clearly whom the "major players in the field are." But certainly Frank Bradley is often quoted and his books are used in several university courses. In Britain, the name of Jeryl Whitelock appears several times. There is not a large amount of literature or Internet information on research on market entry strategy per se. I've therefore included citations that may only touch on this but which it is impossible for me to evaluate without reading it or at least having an abstract. ...
Management Consulting: international marketing, international ...
Comparative advantage exists when a country has a margin of superiority in the production of a good or service i.e. where the opportunity cost of production is lower. Countries have different factor endowments of labour, land and capital inputs. Countries will specialise in and export those products which use intensively the factors of production which they are most endowed. If each country specialises in those goods and services where they have an advantage, then total output and economic welfare can be increased (under certain assumptions). This is true even if one nation has an absolute advantage over another country. Worked ...
